Product Description

A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens Body Biography Project Bundle is filled with a unique characterization activity for the timeless and sentimental short story. Your students will find plenty of opportunities for creativity during the winter holidays. Teachers and students will experience the unique approach of using a collaborative poster, your unit study, textual evidence, research, and the body biography project!

The project bundle includes 7 characters. Give your students a relevant and modern experience while promoting the 4 C's and achievement. I adapted the body biography concept to align with citing textual evidence, character traits, research, and inference skills.

Includes 7 choices:

★ Each poster is a character from the story. Featuring images- of Ebenezer Scrooge, Jacob Marley, Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim, Ghost of Christmas Past, Ghost of Christmas Present, Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come (The Future).

★ Comes in line art for your students to add color and design.

★ Poster is 32 inches high by 10 inches wide. It requires 4 pages each.

★ Rubric and Reflection Questions

★ Bonus - characterization pre-planning sheets for each character!

★ Student handout that explains each part of the body biography project (there are 12 parts). For the three ghosts, I have provided a different requirement including Scrooge's journey, redemption, wealth, poverty, time, and lessons learned.

★ Teacher set up directions, learning objective / learning outcomes, background, tips, and CCSS


Here is your list:

Ebenezer Scrooge

Jacob Marley
Bob Cratchit

Tiny Tim

Ghost of Christmas Past

Ghost of Christmas Present

Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come (The Future)

What’s the Student Objective?

•Review what is supportive evidence.

•Define the literary term “character trait” and explore how to provide details that support their inferences (apply this skill similar to exploring a fictional text).

•Use the novel, class notes, and web resources to research the character (subject), then cite evidence to find accurate and descriptive word choice.

•Fill out A Christmas Carol Biography graphic organizer/poster

Group work should promote:

•Intellectual understanding, abilities, and skills.

•Communication, cooperative and teamwork skills such as planning. management, leadership and peer support.

•Personal growth (increased self-esteem and self-confidence).
