ALIGNED with the ELA COMMON CORE STANDARDS! Students love to tag one another in pictures on Facebook. By using that same concept in a novel study or in a history lesson, students will match up characters/historical figures to various cartoon, movie, and TV show characters. They have to justify their choices, which allows them to create their own similes and metaphors for each character.

It's a fun activity & definitely one the students understand! Works well for review.

Includes over 15 pages of different "tags":
Looney Tunes
Peanuts (Snoopy)
Family Guy
The Simpsons
The Office
Harry Potter movie
Twilight movie
Superheroes and Villains
Nickelodeon friends
Holiday Characters

A warning: While most are, some of the "tags" may not be appropriate for younger students (such as the South Park and Family Guy pages). Please use your own discretion before using in the classroom.

This is one of many great lessons that can be used across the curriculum. History: use it to review important historical figures.
Science-use it to review famous scientists.
Vocabulary words - find the association between the word and a character. Excellent activity for gifted students.

Always try to incorporate some creative thinking into your lessons. It helps the students look at things differently, it opens their minds, and it builds excellent problem-solving skills.
