Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH Project #1 ~ Character Traits Book
Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH has many of characters. One way for students to keep them straight is to create a note card for each character with a brief description and character traits.
This free printable helps students organize the cards. Printables are provided for students to create an eight page book with pockets. The book has eight pockets which are divided into groups:
Project #2 ~ Origami Scenes from the Story
Below you will find a several YouTube videos showing how to create origami animals from Mrs. Frisby in the Rats of NIMH. Note: The mice are easy to create; however, I recommend having students practice with scrap paper first.
Place students into small learning groups. Have students think of a scene from the story with animals only. Each student should create one origami animal. The combined animals are then turned into a diorama like the one pictured. This is a really fun project. You could extend the project by having students write a summary of the scene to place with the diorama.
