Why Lesson Planet?
Class members take on the role of graphic designer and craft a cover for a book they are reading. Individuals formulate a proposal outlining the images they will use to not only grab the interest of readers, but hint at the mood and content of the story also. Once the proposal has been shared and approved, class members capture images, or create their own artwork, and produce their cover. Consider extending the activity and having pupils write a brief summary of the book to include on the jacket flaps.
