This project was created as a culminating activity for my theme unit. We use the Marzano system, so I wanted my students to be in design question four for our final activity.
With this activity, students will be presented with a problem that several books have lost their themes, and it is up to the students to find them. Students are given specific titles, and cards with themes written on them. They work in mixed-ability cooperative learning groups to read, summarize, and justify a theme for each book.
Multiple copies of each of the following books are needed for this project:
The Story of Ferdinand
Somebody Loves you Mr. Hatch
Where the Wild Things Are
The Rainbow Fish
