Post-reading Activity

Hey Hey!

With my 3rd graders we have finished reading Cake Test book recently. As a post-reading activity they created a mind map using the characters from the book. Since this book is a non-ELT one, some of them found it difficult to follow the events. With this mind-mapping activity I saw that the story got clearer for them.

First we talked about the characters starting from the main character. In the middle is the name of the main character. Then, others followed behind him. Last, they described the main characters with 1-2 sentences. 



You can also use an online tool like www.mindmup.com , but I wanted them to write by hand as they still have spelling mistakes.
