Matchbook Chapter Summaries
- legal-size folders - "matchbook papers" (white construction paper cut into pieces approximately 3.5 in x 6 in) - zip-top baggies
Give students one "matchbook paper" for each chapter completed. Students illustrate their favorite scene from the chapter on the outside of the matchbook. Inside they write a 5-7 sentence summary of the chapter. (Matchbooks may be stored in zip-top baggies for safe keeping.) When all summaries are complete, glue them into the file folder. Decorate the cover of the folder for the finishing touch.
