The Whipping Boy by Sid Fleischman Social Networking Facebook Creative Activity
Common Core Reading: #3
As many of you know, Facebook is becoming a very popular way for kids and adults to communicate with one another. So, in an effort to help connect reading to the lives of students, Wiseguys has created a Facebook activity for the novel The Whipping Boy by Sid Fleischman. This activity contains a blank social network template page, a template page with directions, a step-by-step instructional page, and a grading rubric.
For this activity, students are asked to complete several tasks. First, students are asked to write the name of the book at the top of the Facebook page. After that, they are asked to draw a colorful picture about a favorite character from the story. Then, students are asked to think of at least six friends that their character would like to invite on his/her social network Facebook page (two character friends from the story that they read, two story friends from another book, one famous friend such as an athlete, actor/actress, singer, and one of their own friends).
After that, students need to think of five events that their character would want to share with his/her six friends. Students will need to write the event name in the Facebook page and include at least 1 complete sentence about the event. For example, Heading to the lakeÂ¦ I am going fishing today with grandpa on Upper Long Lake. I'll let you know how I did later.
