I used to be wary of assigning a book report for a book that had a movie - afraid that too many of my students would take the "easy way out" and just watch the movie, missing the fabulous details included in the book. Oftentimes, the books were very different from the movie, so it was easy to tell who had taken the short cut.
To ease my conscience and give my students the opportunity to BOTH read the book AND watch the movie, I created this fun project to test their comparing and contrasting skills.
This free packet includes 4 graphic organizers to use when comparing and contrasting details from a book and the movie that it inspired. I've also included a link to a digital version that your students can complete and submit through Google classroom.
