Fun Turtle Book Report Projects For Elementary School Students

Are you looking for a fun turtle shaped book report project for your students to complete?

These extra large turtle templates can be used as a cooperative group project or as an individual student book report project.

Traditionally, requiring students to write about the beginning, middle, and end of a book is a task that most students find quite boring.

By using this uniquely shaped turtle book report project, students write about the head (beginning,) body (middle), and tail (ending) of their stories inside their turtle templates.

There is also an area for students to write about their favorite part of the story and an area where they can draw a picture.

Fun Turtle Book Report Project Templates and Printable Worksheets For Elementary School Students
Fun Turtle Projects For Kids

This uniquely shaped book report project contains nine templates that assemble into a large turtle. The finished turtle project measures 24 x 17  inches. 

Everything that you need to complete this turtle book report project is included in this set of teaching resources. All that you will need is scissors, glue, tape, and coloring pencils.

There are 19 printable worksheets and template pages in this set, as well as a 5 page color bulletin board display banner. You'll be able to design a colorful and eye catching bulletin board display using your students' finished projects.

In addition, this set of reading resources includes an award certificate, 6 display turtles with reading slogans written on them, and 9 smaller turtle templates that can be used as accent pieces for your classroom bulletin board display.

Note:  Due to spelling differences in English (Examples: color/colour and favorite/favourite), there are two separate sets of worksheets and templates included in this set of teaching resources.

You can select the version (U.S. or U.K. spelling rules) that contains the spelling that is used in the country where you live. 

The worksheets and templates that are shown on this page use U.S. spelling rules.

Assembling Directions:

This set of teaching resources includes step by step directions on how to assemble the 9 templates into a large turtle.

Below is an example of the assembly directions worksheets.

Grading Rubric:

Turtle Book Report Project Grading Rubric

A book report grading rubric is included in this set of teaching resources.

I believe that it is important for students to evaluate their own work, so my book report rubric contains an assessment section for both students and teachers.

When students evaluate their book report projects, they color in the faces on their grading rubric worksheets. When a teacher evaluates the projects, the teacher circles the small numbers inside each box on the printable worksheets.

Below is an example of my grading rubric.

Turtle Book Report Project Grading Rubric For Students and Teachers

First Draft Worksheets:

Steps of the Writing Process

I believe that it is important for students to go through the steps of the writing process. For this reason, my students never begin their turtle projects by writing on their final draft turtle templates, instead they write on first draft worksheets.

Next, my students edit and revise their written work on their own, with a partner, or in individual writing conferences with me.

This set of teaching resources contains 2 first draft worksheets. On these first draft worksheets, I have designed the writing line spaces to match the spaces on the final draft turtle templates.

This turtle book report project requires students to write about the following topics:

  • Head = Beginning of Story
  • Body = Middle of Story
  • Tail = Ending of Story
  • A Turtle-ific Part of the Story = Favorite Part of Story

Below are examples of the two first draft worksheets.

My students love completing this fun activity and they are proud of their finished turtle projects!

TEACHING TIP:

This project requires a lot of green coloring materials to complete these extra large turtle templates. A few days before my students begin working on their final drafts, I ask them to bring in green coloring pencils and markers.

By having my students bring in some of these materials from home, it helps to not dwindle down all of the green coloring materials that I have in my classroom. Students also enjoy bringing in green glitter to help them put some sparkly touches on their turtle projects.

Black and White Turtle Templates:

Fun Turtle Projects and Templates For Kids

Students should proofread and edit their first drafts before they begin working on their final draft turtle projects.

This unique and fun book report project includes 9 templates that are assembled together to form a large turtle shape.

When the project has been assembled, the students' turtles will measure 24 inches in width and 17 inches in height.

Your students will love working on this large project and these finished student book report projects will make a dynamic and eye catching classroom or hallway display.

Below you can see examples of the 9 turtle templates.

The circle template (#9 above) is the area where students draw a picture. 

The circle is glued in the center of the turtle's shell.

When I am first introducing my students to a new book report project, I believe that it is important for them to have a visual example of what a completed project looks like.

I always complete an example of this turtle book report project before I introduce this assignment to my students.

Before my students begin writing their first drafts, I show them my finished turtle project. This visual example immediately grabs my students' attention and they are excited to start working on this project from the very beginning. I have found that my students are engaged and use their best effort as they go through the steps of the writing process and complete this fun book report project.

My students also enjoy hearing about the book that I chose to do my book report project on. This is also a wonderful opportunity to share a book that I would like to encourage my students to read.

To save you time in coloring your example that you show to your students, I have included color turtle templates in this teaching resources set. I display my finished turtle book report at the front of my classroom so that students can refer to it as they are completing their own turtle projects.

Bulletin Board Display Ideas and Examples For Turtle Projects

I know that it takes teachers a lot of time to design and assemble their classroom bulletin board displays.

Many teachers spend their valuable time cutting out large display letters or making a banner at home on their own computers.

In order to help save you time in assembling a bulletin board display featuring your students' turtle projects, I have designed a 5 page banner that is included for free in this set of teaching resources.

If you have access to a laminating machine, I recommend that you laminate your banner so that it will be more durable and you can use it again in the future.
