Realistic Fiction
Sandwich Book Project

Top Bread Slice: Write the book title, author, illustrator, and your name

Lettuce: Write a one-paragraph summary of the book

Cheese: Write about a part of the book that made you happy

Meat: Describe the main character in one paragraph

Onion: Describe a part of the book that you thought was sweet or sad. Write what you thought of the book.

Tomato: Describe or draw the book's setting
Bottom Bread Slice: Tell what you liked or didn't like about the author's style

After reading a realistic fiction book, you will fill out the 7 pieces of information required to make a great "book sandwich." You then neatly color the papers, cut them out, and use a paper fastener to put them together. On the due date be prepared to share your book and project with the class! This project focuses on narrative elements and our responses to great stories.

Due: Friday, December 11th
