Cereal Box Book Reports

Each month, my students complete a book report.  For the month of September, they were required to read a fiction book and then complete a Cereal Box Book Report.  I had never assigned this type of report but it turned out to be a hit!
Here are some of my students' boxes (names have been marked out):
 The students had to create a game on the back of the box that related to the story:
Each box needed to have a prize inside, or at least a picture of the prize on the front of the box.  The prize needed to be related to the book, of course.

The students had to present their book reports on Friday in a 1-2 minute commercial.  They all did a great job!

If you'd like to use this in your class, here are the instructions and templates:
