A few years ago, I started using Cereal Box Book Reports as a Reading  project. My students LOVED making them, I noticed a big difference in their engagement in the book report process, and they were so excited to share their final projects.  We even left the finished products on display in the classroom!

Cereal names must correlate to the novels. These two projects were for the books Charlotte’s Web and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. Students used a rubric to know the expectations for a high-quality project.

Book summaries were written on one side panel of the cereal box report.

Students enjoyed creating their boxes! They identified and described the setting and main characters on the other side panel.
Students then created a fun game or activity related to the book on the back. Some made a word search, while others designed mazes, word scrambles, or riddles.
