This is a good end of year activity. I have students pick one of their independent reading books and then create a book trailer using iMovie. We do a movie trailer screening and the kids love it.
This assignment could be adapted into end of unit
As an introduction to the nonfiction unit, I take my students to the library where they can find books in the nonfiction section. I make sure they get books from every category and then require them to create a reading list for that marking period.

This is a great beginning of the school year assignment and good for a Back to School Night. I have students find quotes and make a graffiti wall. In the past, I have used chalkboard bulletin board paper, but this year I am going digital.
