One of the highlights of middle and high school students' school year is receiving their yearbooks. They pore through the pages to see how many times they were mentioned, to groan or giggle about how they and their peers were depicted and to critique the photos, all with the same intensity that we wish they showed for the books they studied that year.

With Making Memories-A Yearbook Spread Activity, they will be able to combine their understanding of the characters in a book that they studied that year with their ideas for the "Perfect" yearbook spread.

Not only will they work individually or in pairs to choose a fiction or non-fiction book, but they will also select a Spread Idea such as:

1. Student Life

2. Community

3. Clubs and Activities (choose one)

4. Sports

5. Leadership

as well as a Spread Presentation Theme, such as:

1. Memories

2. Last Will and Testament

3. Senior Superlatives

4. Movers and Shakers

5. Theme of their own (with teacher approval).

Keep your students motivated, inspired and on-task with this engaging any time of the year activity that is aligned with Common Core Standards and Bloom's Taxonomy.

As always, this activity- PDF version- may be downloaded and printed for classroom use. Also, an Easel Activity is ready to be used for Google Classroom.
