Allow students to be creative while demonstrating comprehension skills and analyzing A Christmas Carol with this resource! This resource can be used with either the novel A Christmas Carol or the play version. Students will create their own copy of Scrooge’s scrapbook as if they are Ebenezer Scrooge himself.
Here is how I use this resource in my classroom.
1.Before beginning the story, make a copy of each sheet for each student and staple them together as a packet. If this is too overwhelming for your students, you may choose to give them out one at a time.
2.Give students a copy of the student instruction sheet and the scrooge’s scrapbook copies.
3.As you read the story/play, give students time to work on their scrapbook. Some pages can be completed throughout the story while others will need to be completed at the end.

Page 10: a changed man entry- this should be completed when students have read the entire story.
Pages 11-12: free choice- these could either be done while reading the story or after finishing the story.
Page 13: annotation guide- students will complete this after the are completely done with their scrapbook and explain why each entry was significant to scrooge.
If you need to make accommodations for students, you can always choose to leave the free choice pages out or reduce the amount that students write on each page.
You can have students cut out their scrapbook pages and staple them together like a real journal.
