It’s not easy to find an engaging book report project that can be used for any work of fiction. It's even harder to find one that is fun and requires text-based evidence. If those qualities are what you’re looking for, this one fits the bill!

This project will have students giving a useful “gift” to a book character. They will prove the gift’s worth in a friendly letter, using the correct friendly letter format, as well as text-based evidence. They will also follow instructions so they can create a gift box to house the gift.

There are two gift box options, for differentiation. Option 1 is the “exploding” box, which is easy to make and so much fun to open! Option 2 makes use of a small box that students can easily find at home, such as a small tissue box or take-out container.

I have included
~ a fun little backstory to explain the project
~ a sample/mentor letter
~ a rubric
~ templates with step-by-step visual instructions
And more!
