Realistic Fiction Pizza Book Report
This book project is to read a realistic fiction book and create a pizza that accurately reflects all aspects of your book and provides evidence from your book for each story element.
  1. After you have read your book, start your pizza with a round piece of paper, at least 12” in diameter, for the crust.
  2. Divide the crust into the eight slices and label each slice according to the directions below.
  3. Fill in each slice with both words and pictures.  You may draw, paint, or color your own illustrations OR you may use clip art or photos to decorate your pizza.
  4. The most important rule is to…BE CREATIVE!  You can make your pizza 3-dimensional using construction paper or other materials.  Think of other ways to make your project uniquely your own and to entice other students to “take a bite” out of your book.
  5. Be neat and organized.  Need I say more?
  6. Include DETAILS!  Quality details in your words, quotes, and art work determine the difference between the grade of a 3 and a 4.
  7. Have fun!
  8. Be ready to share your pizza with the class on the day that it is due.
