Shoe Box Book Report
Using a shoebox, you will create a prop that represents
the book you read. You must check your book with me to make sure it is
an appropriate reading level for you!
- Cover your shoebox with construction paper
- On the top of the box, recreate the
cover of your book.
- On the two short sides, draw images
of the main characters of your book
- On one long side, draw an interpretation
of an important setting in the story.
- On the other long side draw an image
(or images) that represents the theme (s) of the novel.
- Inside the box, recreate
an important scene from your novel. OR Include a number of
objects (at least five, but make use of the size of the box) that
have significance to the story. Make sure everything is secure enough
to handle being moved around.
- Also placed inside the box
should be a written explanation of the images and symbols you’ve used
to represent your book. Write about all exterior images and the objects
or scene inside. Describe them and explain why you feel they are relevant
to the story, or, in the case of characters, why you have depicted
them the way you have (300-500 words).
