Cereal Box Book Report

Cereal Box Book Report

This month’s book report will be on a student selected biography book. Over the next few weeks, students will read their book and create a cereal box book report at home. Students will decorate a cereal box with illustrations and information related to the person they chose to do their report on. Please follow  the directions below.



FRONT OF THE BOX: Use a piece of white or light colored paper to cover the front of your cereal box. (You will probably want to create the cover before gluing it on your box.) Include the name of the person and a picture.


RIGHT SIDE OF BOX: List 5 interesting facts about the person.


LEFT SIDE OF BOX: Create a time-line containing at least 8 important events in the person’s life.


BACK OF BOX: Give a detailed account of the person’s life and the impact they had on American history.


TOP OF BOX: Include the title, author, number of pages, and publisher. You can use the template or create the top of the box yourself as long as you include all of the things listed above.


*All templates for this cereal box book report are available on our class website. This will be helpful for students who want to write rough drafts for the sides of their box before doing the final copies. Also, if students mess up or want to redo any section of the box, they can just print new copies from the website. If students need any glue, scissors, markers, white paper, colored paper, or construction paper from school, they are more than welcome to borrow those materials upon request.
