Add a little fun to ANY novel, play, short story, or history unit with this print-and-teach worksheet where students choose a character (or historic figure) and fill his/her fictional cell phone with email messages, playlist entries, and a wallpaper image.
This PDF file includes a blank form and a completed sample to show students, if you wish. The sample is from my students’ study of To Kill a Mockingbird, showing Scout Finch’s cell phone content, but you could use this worksheet with ANY book or short story. A separate option for history classrooms is included, too.
Hope you enjoy this activity, which works with students in grades 6-12.
