This is a set of 4 different character activities/organizers that I have created and use with my class: Character Trading Cards, Character Trait Evidence Activity, Character Map, and Character Questioning Dice w/optional recording sheet.
These activities can be used with any story to help students understand the concepts of character and require students to use evidence from the text to support their thinking. I have used all of these activities in my classroom and my students find them highly motivating.
*Character Trading Cards
*Character Trait Evidence Activity
*Character Questioning Dice w/optional recording sheet.
Note: A personal favorite of my class are the character trading cards. Each student has created one for each story that we read in class. My students have asked to make them for their independent reading book characters too. I leave a folder of blank character trading cards for students to work on when they finish their assignments. Great for fast finishers!
