This activity is a great class meeting / reading lesson combined. After discussing what a character trait is (words that describe how a character ACTS), students will write traits that describe the people in their classroom. In my classroom, I put the names on sticks. Each child picked one stick with a child's name on it. They were given the task to observe their 'secret classmate throughout the day and fill out the character trait chart. At the end of the day - the character trait papers were shared.
