This activity works with any book or series that has strong character development. Invite your students to show what they know about a character by planning a birthday party for them. Once the party planning is complete. Students can explain why they made these choices on a corresponding form. Students should be able to back up the party plans with facts or inferences from the text that was read.

The final sheet allows for students to illustrate the party that they planned. The illustration should match their words.
