10. Book Report Sandwich Station

This site guides the student through a mini book report. Students begin by writing their name, the book title, and author name. The student is then encouraged to “Add” parts of the sandwich to their book report. Once the student types all of their information, it can be printed. There is an option at the end to leave room to draw a picture when it is printed.
