This is a fun alternate to the traditional book report that I use with my students. Upon completing a book, students must bring in items relating to the book to share with the class. All items must fit in a brown paper bag that I distribute. There is a written explanation component as well. Students get very creative selecting items to fit in their bag, and artistic students get a special chance to shine!
This project could be easily adapted to work with any age. All rubrics are included, as well as direction and examples for students. Happy Teaching!
