Want to get students thinking critically and creatively about what they're reading? This activity asks students to consider important aspects of a character they have been reading about, create symbolic representations, and provide textual evidence and support for their ideas. The best part? Students create a creative visual representation of all their heavy thinking. It is great to be used as a fun check-in or as a creative summative.
* An 8th Common-Core based rubric is included as a bonus.
