Generic Activities for Novel Studies

Clip to ScrapBook #1

Hello,

I'm looking for ideas for generic activities that can be used for novel studies (plot, character development, etc). I've got a developmental class with students varying from K-5 reading levels, and I'm looking for non-pencil-to-paper stuff.

Any and all ideas appreciated!

No paper/pencil activities?

I don't know if these would be too hard:
*act out scenes
*use playdough to create the setting
*paint out the setting or characters

I have tons of generic ideas that require writing, but you stumped me. I interested to see what everyone comes up with.

Yes, this is a tough one. I have my students do a lot of paper-pencil type things. Even the fun stuff requires some type of writing -

Gameboards
Puppets
Diorama
Commercial - TV or Radio
Posters
Collages - not paper-pencil but cutting, gluing
Interviews

Hope you get some more ideas.

are my favorites to use. I used play dough for a few short weeks--it became FILTHY from their little hands in no time. I threw it out and have never used it again.
