Story Skeleton Book Report Project

Halloween came and went this year in my classroom and it was full of delicious sweet treats, colorful costumes, and mysterious tales. To shake up our learning this season, I decided to assign my students a twist on the traditional book report, a Story Skeleton Book Report project. I first learned of the idea from a colleague and then found (as I searched for written instructions of the project online) that many other teachers were assigning this fun activity to their kids as well. 

Now, you may be thinking (as my students were) do the Story Skeleton Book Reports have to be on scary stories? And, the answer to that is no. I know not all families celebrate Halloween or enjoy all the scary elements that are associated with it, therefore I would never force it upon them. Instead, I encouraged my students to complete their book report on a mystery or adventure story such as a Cam Jansen, Nate the Great, or Magic Tree House book. Scary stories were totally optional, but not required.

The students were really excited about this project when they first heard about it  and their enthusiasm showed in their creations. 

Check out their bony creations below:
