Product Description
Character Trait Swap

Character Trait Swap is a game played with the entire class.
Students line up facing one another and use their trait cards to talk about themselves, their opinions, an historic figure, or a literary character.

This high-interest activity can either be used as a stand-alone activity to help students use evidence to support claims or as a springboard for multi-genre writing assignments.

Variations of the game and extension assignments are included.

After each set is used, the word wall mini-posters will help students make claims (and support them with examples, stories, and quotations) about future fiction and non-fiction tasks.

Character Trait Swap: Skills/Objectives

1. Writing across genres
2. Making claims
3. Discussing and writing about character traits by citing evidence (i.e. telling stories and giving examples)
4. Analyzing real and/or fictional characters
5. Working with diverse partners
