This is a lesson plan and student sheet that will guide students to create a "radio commercial" about a book of their choice. This commercial serves as a kind of mini book review.
Students are expected to address the book's themes, list major events, highlight a main character and that character's traits, etc.
This activity can be worked on independently or at a guided reading group. My 5th grade students had a blast recording and then playing their commercials for each other, but this activity could easily be adapted for both 4th or 6th grade.
