Product Description
I used this at the end of a grade 9 short story unit. Using the template provided, students created a three-dimensional cube that highlighted the six short stories we read over the unit. Students were asked to create a "poster" on each side of the cube to represent each of the short stories we read.
Each side of the cube was to capture the essence of that short story and represent the story as a whole. I encouraged students to think of this as similar to a movie poster used to advertise a movie.

This document includes assignment instructions, a rubric for evaluation, the cube template and a planning sheet for students to use. I gave students the planning sheet and all assignment guidelines at the beginning of the unit so that they could start thinking about what pictures they might include as the unit went on. If I ever had time left at the end of a given lesson, this was a great way to fill up the remainder of the period (have students work on their planning sheet).

FYI: a) I photocopied the template onto larger paper (11 by 17). b) The images in the preview are a bit cut off, and text is running onto different pages.
