For use with the novel Sweet Friday Island by Theodore Taylor. This end of the novel party includes responsibilities for six groups with unique skill sets and interests. Students are tasked with providing; music, games, decorations, food and more to celebrate their time spent reading the novel and residing on the island.
The groups can be chosen by either the teacher or student. I have had success with this "fiesta" multiple times in class and was always impressed with the output of the students.
