Create a 3D pyramid book report after reading The Egypt Game by Zilpha Keatley Snyder
Lined Pyramid Template
Blank Pyramid Template
4 Thinking Maps graphic organizers to use as prewrites:
1. Tree Map for April's Character Traits
2. Bubble Map for describing the setting
3. Sequence Map for creating story sequence summary
4. Circle Map for defining and giving examples of the theme (Do not judge a book by it's cover)
By the end students will have created 4 graphic organizers used to write 4 paragraphs, one for each side of the pyramid. Or come up with your own paragraph themes for each side of the pyramid.
*Hint: My class spent one day a week working on each side (using the thinking map, writing a rough draft, editing and writing the final draft and coloring the pyramid) and on the last day put everything together.
