Looking for an end of the year project to do after STAAR? What about a project to do after teaching plot?
This is a project that includes reading, writing, and art skills all in one!
What is it?
A scene in a box is a diorama made from a shoe box or any small or medium box. I went to a local pizza place and they donated pizza boxes!
I created this project because I was wanting to have my students do something fun after learning plot. I remembered doing a diorama when I was in middle school and thought it would be fun to put the two of them together and create a book fair!
Students will choose a book, write a book report, choose their favorite scene in the book and recreate it into a diorama. Then you will set up the dioramas and invite parents and other classes to check out the Scene in Box Book Fair.
