This 3-D Book Study/Book Report has always been a class favorite.
This project can be done while reading the book Frindle, or at the end of the novel. I typically use this project while reading the book as a whole class, but it can also be done in small reading groups, book clubs, or as an independent project.
There are 12 panels all together covering story elements throughout the book. The project incorporates both art and writing and looks amazing displayed in the classroom!
I do this project as we read the book together. Throughout the book, I do mini lessons on story elements and we discuss throughout. This resource is for the project only. It does include a short implementation guide (admittedly very quickly written.)
This project hits the following standards when done throughout the reading.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.4.1 Refer to details and examples in a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text.
