"What's On Their Cell Phone" is designed to accompany the completion of a fiction novel. Use this activity as a group project or independent study.
Students must choose a character from the novel completed either in class or on their own. They must brainstorm ideas and design a cell phone to best fit their character. What apps would the character have? What color would the phone be? Would their phone have a broken screen?
They will be required to draw, write, and use their imagination. They must also refer to their text and draw upon character traits. After completing the cell phone design, they must write up a quick statement on the attached lined paper explaining what apps they included and why.
