This is a fun alternate to the traditional book report that I use with my students. Students design and describe a novel-themed amusement park, including rides and shops. This project allows students to incorporate an incredible amount of creativity, while still maintaining Common Core rigor (all parks and rides must be supported with text-based evidence!).
This project could be easily adapted to work with any age as well as any novel. All rubrics are included, as well as direction for students. I allow students to use their strengths for bonus points. Some actually create three-dimensional representations of the rides! Some design restaurants for their park, etc. Happy Teaching!
