The Best Christmas Pageant Ever by Barbara Robinson: Project Ideas

Use the Project Proposal printable to help your students complete their projects.

Design a poster for the Christmas pageant starring the Herdman kids.

Write a bio-poem about Imogene Herdman.

Make an "Attack Cat" sign that the Herdmans could put in their weed-covered front yard. Be sure draw the Herdmans' cat on the sign.

Write a new adventure for the Herdman kids.

What if the Herdmans decided to work together to design their own Christmas card? What do you it would look like? Make this card.

The teacher made a new rule for Show-and-Tell after the Herdmans' cat paid a visit. Make a poster giving at least five rules for Show-and-Tell.

Create a puppet show depicting an event in the story. This means you'll have to make the puppets backdrop, and scenery in addition to writing and performing the skit.

Bake an applesauce cake to share with your class, but don't burn it as the ladies on the pot-luck did.
