I have done this unit project/multi-day lesson with ELL students, 2nd graders, 3rd graders and this year I will try it with my 4th grade students.
We have a graphic novel museum. Groups read different graphic novels and then create a museum display with artifacts that represent the story's characters, setting, problem, solution and theme.
These artifact planning sheets are the perfect start to get students thinking about what can represent their story.
Lots of fun! I have included the lesson as well as photos. The document is in word so it can easily be modified for a Novel Museum related to any genre (not solely graphic novels.)
If you try it out, let me know how it goes! This is a really great end-of-the year reading/LA project. The kids get very INTO making their own creative artifacts to display for others.
