Fish in a Tree - A Book-tivity Craft
Get your students thinking about their reading and comprehension about Fish in a Tree by Lynda Hunt with this fun fish-shaped book-tivity craft. Students will answer 6 comprehension questions based on the book (5 are written responses, 1 question asks them to draw). There is also a blank template panel if you want to add your own comprehension question about the text.
Students will answer the questions on each page, cut out and decorate the fish panels, and then assemble the resource into a 3D activity, perfect for display.
This resource contains options for two different sizes –one on full sheets (great for display in a larger area and for students who need more room to work), and one on half sheets (great for smaller display areas and smaller designs). Print only the size you need. You need 6 individual panels to create the craftivity. I have included the 6 panels plus a blank template for both sizes (actually –two blank templates –one with lines and one completely blank) –the blank template can be used to add your own question, or use as a cover page in case you want to assemble the craftivity into a flip-book format rather than a 3D resource.
I have also included a picture of a branch in case you wish to have your students “hang” their fish from a tree for display purposes.
A rubric is also included for formative or summative assessment.
You have three different options for printing (you want your craftivityto be sturdy enough to stand on its own):
-Print on white construction paper
-Print on cardstock
-Print on regular paper, then glue onto construction paper and cut out around shape.
For easier completion, be sure students complete each page BEFORE they assemble the craftivity.
