Creative Projects For Children's Books:

Fun Group Projects For Reading and Book Report Projects blue bullet point On this page, you will find many unique student projects based on popular children's novels. My students actually cheer when it is time for them to work on a group project based on a novel that they have read together in class.

blue bullet point For the book titles that are listed above, you will find LARGE and creative cooperative group projects for your students to complete after they have read a book together.

blue bullet point Learning to work in cooperative groups is an important skill that we must teach our students. As teachers, we need to present our students with opportunities to work together with their classmates.


Fun and Unique Group Projects for Elementary Students blue bullet point There are also fun individual student projects available for many of the books that are found on this page.

blue bullet point I spent the last 16 years of my teaching career working at the elementary school level. Consequently, the majority of the books that I have created resources for, and that are listed on this page, are for Grades 1 - 5 students.

blue bullet point Below you can view examples of some of the creative projects for children's books that are available on my website.
