CEREAL BOX BOOK REPORT
The book report for the months of November and December will be 2 parts.
The first will be a cereal box project and the second part will be a class
presentation in the form of a commercial for their cereal. The details for
both are attached and the final product will be due: __________________.
Class presentations of their “commercials” will be done during this same
week.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*Front of the 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.
*Back of the box - Students need to 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 pictures 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.
*Left side of the box: Students have to write a summary of their book.
*Top of the box: Students need to write the name of the book, the author,
number of pages, and they must give the book a rating.
*Right side of the box: Students need to write the "ingredients" of their book
- the characters and setting.
*Students need to come up with an oral presentation that will help them
share their cereal. Try to think of a very creative "commercial" to sell your
cereal (tell others to read your book).
******* EXTRA CREDIT ******
*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.

Cereal Box Commercial
Students will share their project by doing a 1 to 2 minute commercial for their cereal. These
oral presentations will be presented the week their book reports are due. Students should
practice their commercials at home to make sure of the timing. The goal is to make other
students really want to buy the cereal (read the book). Use the following guidelines for
writing the commercial.
- Share exciting elements from the book –the problem, important scenes, interesting characters etc.
- Be energetic! Try to convince the audience to buy the cereal whether you liked the book or not.
- Cereal has nutritional value and is “good for the body.” Tell your classmates why this book would be good for them!
- (Optional) Be a character from the book to help you “sell” your product.

This sheet is only for planning purposes. If you prefer to type your commercial or write it on index cards, that is fine. You will not
need to turn in a draft of your commercial. Your grade on this part of the project will be based on how well you present your
commercial to the class.
