Create a Quiz: Students could use Google Forms to create a quiz about the book/story they read for others to take.
This requires a bit of thinking on their end and they will need to be very familiar with the book in order to come up with different types of questions and their answers.
Code the Story Elements: Students could use a coding program like Scratch or Scratch Jr.
to code an interactive story that will help retell their book.
Some ideas for video platforms include but aren't limited to: i Movie, Windows Movie Maker, Flipgrid, We Video, Video Recorder, Pocket Video app, Apple Clips app or just use your device's main camera! Book Cover Project: Design a Book Cover Collaborative Class Project makes such a memorable activity.
Cereal Box Book Reports: Back in January I blogged about how students could create Cereal Book Book Reports by using a template I created in Google Drawing. Students design a new book cover in Google Drawing, save as a png image and upload to a collaborative Google Slides presentation that has a picture of a bookshelf.
Below is an example that Katie from Elementary Einstein's carried out with her class.
They were doing reports about the regions of California but a similar idea could be done with a book report!
Just assign the template to students and they have the option of working on it independently or collaboratively. Book Trailers: Students can persuade someone to read their book by creating book trailers about the book they have read by using i Movie/i Movie app (lots of different movie trailer templates), Adobe Spark Video, or any other video creation tool of your choice.
My favorite is i Movie because it is so easy for students to drag and drop pictures and video clips into the provided storyboard templates.
