Wordless Wednesday: Responding to a Novel

I really look forward to Wednesdays and joining Miss DeCarbo for...

What kinds of novel responses or projects do you have your students complete?

This is a project that I have done with my 5th-7th grade students for more than 25 years.

Occasionally I  ask my students to illustrate a science concept or an idea from Religion class, but normally I just ask them to complete this three dimensional triorama as a response to a literature circle novel they have read.

Sometimes I ask them to display a particular literary element, such as setting or characters, sometimes I ask them to display a plot element, such as the climax or resolution.

This year I simply asked them to display and write about their favorite part of the story. The trioramas that they created are FABULOUS...

and the writing to accompany them is WONDERFUL as well!
