I have created an Illustrated Character Sketch that can be used in several different ways. It is a great ice-breaker at the beginning of the year. I give one sketch to each person. They tell me all about themselves on the character drawing. When they complete the words that describe themselves, they add their own personality to the sketch--hair, clothes, shoes, etc. Some of the students want to use chart paper and create a huge drawing of their sketch.
In addition, the sketch can be used when introducing or teaching character qualities/personality traits/character traits. It is a great way to review descriptive words about a character. This activity is a lot of fun! Try it! YOUR STUDENTS WILL LOVE IT!
