This project menu is perfect for a final project concluding The One and Only Ivan! The Ape-Tastic Appetizers are focused on vocabulary. The Elephant Lover's Entrees are focused on theme. The Dog's Delicious Desserts are focused on other story elements. Students are asked to pick one choice from each area and each area provides a variety of mediums for students to show what they learned. Your students will love this final project, and the freedom to make it their own!
IMPORTANT NOTE: The One and Only Ivan can be used in grades 3-8. I designed this lesson for a sixth grade classroom, so those are the standards I listed. Many standards from different grades could be addressed.
