Product Description
This Character Fair Project is not your average book report! Students choose a fictional book that is a good fit as far as readability and interest level. Students are responsible for reading the book and creating a poster or trifold board pertaining to certain criteria about the book and main character in the story. I assign this as homework and students complete it over several weeks.
Then we have a special day that our Character Fair takes place. Students “become” their character and we invite parents, faculty members, and other classes to visit us and ask our “characters” all about themselves, as they mill about and visit each “character’s” display. Students display their posters at their desks (this is why small-medium sized tri-fold boards work well). Some students choose to dress up if their character requires. I LOVE to see the interaction! Not only does it get the students involved, but the adults really get into it too!
For the past five years I have had my students take part in this and it is always a hit! I have done it towards the end of the year, although it would also be a great activity around holidays and testing periods-any time you need something extra engaging up your sleeve.
