Independent Novel Study Projects 6R                                          
Each term, in addition to our in-class novel, you are responsible for one independent novel study project. The projects have been divided into two groups: List A projects are primarily visual, and List B projects are more about writing. You must select one (from list A or B) project each term to pass in. The Term Two project must come from the project list you did not use in Term One. In Term Three the only requirement is that it is a project that you have not done before. Make sure to check out the  evaluation Rubrics to see what needs to be included in each project.

List A: (Include a summary with these.)

1. Create an illustrated map indicating the locations of the important events in the story. Each location should have a small illustration and a caption to identify each and explaining the significance of that place
2. Construct a diorama ( three dimensional scene which includes models of people, buildings, plants and animals) of one of the main events of the book. Include a written description of the scene. 
3. Make a mobile about the story that has at least 5 items. Include a written description of each item.
4. Make a wanted poster for one of the characters in the book. Include the following: (a) a drawing, (b) a physical description, (c) a list of the character’s “crimes” (d) other important information.
5. Create a book cube. Cover a square box with paper. On each of the four sides illustrate and describe the following from your story: important characters, setting, problem or conflict, solution to the conflict. Use the top of the square to write the book’s title and author.
