This creative book report project will excite and engage your students. I created this resource for my 4th grade students to do at home with a reading book of their choice. This resource includes student directions (with a photo of what it looks like put together) and a grading rubric.
There are 12 faces on the dodecahedron. After reading their book, the students will need to complete all 12 faces, cut them out, and glue them together. Each page has an example of what to write, using Cinderella as the example. This book report project can be used with any fiction book.

To use, simply print the first 13 pages single-sided and staple together into a packet. You may want to create an example to show the students what it will look like completed.
