This book investigation can be wonderful as an enrichment activity and it's amazing to see what your students can create! It is designed to be used with a nonfiction book or article.
My students use these spinners, and they LOVE them! All they need is a pencil and a paper clip to make the spinner.

To be used with a fiction piece, this Book Scavenger Hunt is a student favorite.
