Product Description
Once students have read the entire novel, this is an engaging and collaborative way for them to put closure on the activity. I use Anna Roseboro's Nine Yardsticks of Literary Value as the organizing principle for the final discussion (

For this activity, I use actual DIY kites from Oriental Trading ( But you can just have students cut a kite out of chart paper. I use the kites to decorate my classroom and find that the real things are quite appealing.

Students appreciate the opportunity to turn their discussion into a creation. At the end, I jigsaw students into groups so that they can take peers on a gallery walk and explain their kites to peers from different groups. I use the exit ticket to assess at the end.
