Lesson Plan Title : Paper Bag Report

Age Range: Kindergarten through Grade 2 (Early Elementary or Primary Level)

Overview and Purpose : This book report uses the paper bag as part of the report. Students draw scenes from the book on each side of the paper bag and use them to give a presentation about their book.

Objective: The student will be able to give a report about a book they read by creating drawings on a paper bag and putting three items inside the bag that represent items in their story.

Give each student a paper bag. Explain that they are going to draw a picture that tells about their book on each side of the bag (including the bottom). Then they will put three things in the bag from the story. They can then use the bag and the items to give their report to the class.


You can also assign a particular part of the book to each side of the bag. For example: one side could be the main characters, one side could show one of the places where the story takes place, etc.
