The projects have students review the character and attempt to tell about the character using largely images and captions. A symbol or motif must be included, along with images related to scenes from the story. Student instruction/ grade sheet included.
This project can be completed digitally—using computer images and layering the items in PowerPoint or a similar program. Alternately, the projects can be completed by hand, using cut out images from magazines or online.
