This graphic organizer is a great tool to use with a range of books at different levels. It is a Character Trading Card that has students research and include several details about a character, and their opinion as well (great text-to-self/world connections). You can print it off as a whole 8 1/2 x 11 sheet, or make them smaller so you can copy and students can share with one another.
I made them half of a sheet of paper, then bounded them together so I could have a character booklet for my book club.
There is plenty of room for students to add a lot of details throughout their reading. In addition, students can illustrate the character and add color to the graphic organizer as well.
