This scrapbook activity, for Kate DiCamillo's novel Because of Winn-Dixie, is a fun way for students to review events and characters from the novel. There are two activity pages. The first page provides images of items from the story, such as a red dog collar and pink and orange party streamers, and asks students to write entries to fit each one that Opal might have written in a scrapbook about her first summer in Naomi. The second page provides photo-shapes for students to draw their own images of the main characters with space to write their captions.
The Easel version is ready-to-use with answer boxes for students to type their answers.
