I am always looking for unique ways for my students to demonstrate understanding of novels they have read. While I love Accelerated Reader and the quick check on comprehension it provides for virtually any novel, sometimes my students crave something a little different.
So, a few years ago, I started using Cereal Box Book Reports as an ELA project. My students LOVE making them, and the finished products can be used to create an eye-catching classroom display!
Here are some photos of the finished products:
Cereal names must correlate to the novels. Students used a rubric to know of the expectations for the project.
Students enjoyed creating their boxes! Some of the cereal names were, uh…..quite creative…. 😉
Novels were rated, summarized, and described on the side panels.
The setting and characters were described on a side panel, and students created a fun game or activity related to the book on the back.
You can create your own rubric and project directions for your students, or if you would like to save time, check out my Cereal Box Book Report Resource Packet!
