Have fun with Character Analysis by creating Paper Dolls!

This project assignment allows students to be creative in their character analysis as we read any book or text with characters!

They are directed to create paper dolls for the various characters in the book, including specific characteristics that define their role as they are represented.

This can be used with any book or any other character analysis activity.

Also included are 2 short answer prompts, a rubric, and a boy and girl paper doll template.

My students love this activity and create very well thought-out paper dolls that I display in the halls. It is always a big hit and works with any grade level.
