Product Description
Use this role play activity to practice identifying character traits of well know fairy tale characters such as Goldilocks and the Three Bears Students will use the character's traits to defend themselves against accusations about their character.

How it Works
Working in small groups (or whole class), one student assumes the identity of the fairy tale character. The other students use the card to take turns to accuse the character of a trait. The student in the hot seat answers back in character citing evidence from the story or text. Students will have a blast impersonating a well know fairy tale character while developing a better understanding of character traits.

Why Use this Resource?
The new CCSS include character analysis. Part of analyzing a character is identifying character traits. Many times, students are baffled by what a trait is or means. This product is designed to help students develop their understanding of character traits and then show their understanding through writing character descriptions. Given a specific character and words that may or may not describe the character, students select at least three words that can be used to describe the character and then write evidence to support those traits.

There's More!
Another fun activity included are Royal Posters. One is a Royal Citation: as part of the Fairy Tale Land Police Department, give a character a ticket based on trait….and, of course, provide the facts to back it up! Or through royal proclamation give a Royal Acclamation Award to a character based on a trait. Had enough of a character? Then issue a Royal Warrant for Arrest. Fill out the warrant on any character based on a trait and give evidence to back up your claim.

All student writing pages are in black and white. Hot Seat cards are in color and are meant to be printed out on card stock, laminated and then used.

The resource includes blank templates so that you can make your own Hot Seat Cards and your own Character Description Writing pages.
