This is a fun activity that can be used with any novel or short story. Students will select a character and based on the character's actions, conflicts, and motives…will come up with a product designed by that character. The written portion is done in 1st Person POV, as the character. Student work must include textual evidence.
This project includes an art portion as well. The end result makes for an adorable bulletin board. It's a lot of fun to have the students present their work as the character.
This is a print and do activity! You do not need to gather anything!
I hope it works as well with your students as it does with mine.
