Additional Resources

Cereal Box Book Report (Fiction)
The Cereal Box is due on May 15, 2020
Students will present their commercials on May 18 or 19 on Teams

TASK: Students will use a cereal box for this project. Students will complete a Cereal Box Book Report. Students can use a fiction or non-fiction book. The book and the project will be completed at home. You may print or type each panel. Follow the directions below for each panel of the box.
FRONT OF THE BOX: Use a piece of white or light colored paper to cover the front of your cereal box. (You will probably want to create the cover before gluing it on your box.) Include the name of the cereal and a picture. Invent a name for the cereal that is related to the title of the book and sounds like a cereal. Do not use the exact title of the book. You may want to look at some real cereal boxes to get some ideas. Choose a shape for the cereal as well as colors and ingredients that all relate to the book. For example, for School of Fear, you might invent a cereal called Phobia Flakes, a toasted oat cereal in the shape of miniature bugs, water, etc.
RIGHT SIDE OF BOX: Make a list of ingredients that includes the story elements – Characters and Setting. Under the heading “Ingredients,” list the main characters and write a sentence about each one. Then describe the setting. The descriptions of the main characters and the setting should be in complete sentences.
LEFT SIDE OF BOX: Write a summary that describes the main problem and the solution of the book. Try words that will “grab” readers’ attention and make them want to buy your cereal.
BACK OF BOX: Design a game that is based on the story. It can be a puzzle, a word search, a word scramble, a maze, a crossword puzzle, a hidden picture illustration, or any other fun activity that might be found on the back of a cereal box. Make sure it includes information from the book.
TOP OF BOX: Include the title, author and number of stars you would give this book if you were a book critic. The maximum number of stars you would be 5. Write a 2-3 sentence critique of the book. Give your opinion of the story.
PRIZE: Cereal boxes often include a prize. Your prize must be something the main character could have used in the book or something that reminds you of the main character. You can even include a picture of the prize on the front of your box to let the reader know what is inside the box.
ORAL PRESENTATION: Your presentation will be a 30-60 second television commercial. Practice your commercial to make sure of the wording and the timing. Do not just encourage the audience by using opinion words (exciting, great, interesting, best, good, etc.), but also by featuring elements of the book- scenes, facts, etc. Be dynamic and try to convince the audience to buy the cereal whether you liked the book or not. Optional: Be a character from the book when you present your commercial.
You will be graded on the following criteria: following directions for each panel, effort, correct grammar, correct spelling, accurate information, and finally overall neatness and creativity.  Have fun with it!
