Book Report Sandwiches

Here's another wonderful idea shared by Donna Godfrey! Draw slices of ham, tomato, and Swiss cheese; lettuce leaves; a layer of mayonnaise, and a couple of slices of bread. Photocopy the drawings onto appropriately colored sheets of paper (ham on pink, tomato on red, Swiss cheese on yellow .). The sheets serve as the ingredients for the book report sandwiches.

On the top slice of bread, each student wrote the title and the author of the book the student had just finished reading. On the lettuce, the student wrote a brief summary of the book. The student wrote about the main character on the tomato slice. On the mayonnaise, the student described the book's setting. The student shared the book's climax on the Swiss cheese. On the ham slice, the student described the plot. On the bottom piece of bread, the student drew a favorite scene from the story. Students stapled together their sandwich layers, then slapped their concoctions up on a bulletin board headlined "We're Hungry for Good Books!"

The project made fun out of what can be a pretty hum-drum activity, but even better, the bulletin board served as a menu for students who were ravenous for a good read. All they had to do was grab a sandwich to learn whether or not a particular book might satisfy their appetites!
