Characterization - Characterization Craftivity
Study characterization with this fun 3D character craftivity. This can be used with the students’ independent reading books, with a class read aloud, with a novel/book study, or as part of a book talk.
This character creativity has the students coloring the main character outline to resemble the main character, writing about the character’s movement, action, thoughts and feeling, comparing and contrasting to another character, making a connection, analyzing how the problem affected the main character, and giving advice to the main character.
There are two different outlines included in this resource – one for male characters and one for female characters. Print only the set you need (the questions / directions are the same for both). Students will finish the writing and coloring (6 pages in total) before assembling the finished characters (assembly instructions on next page).
I have also included a blank character outline in each gender so you can add your own prompt, or have your students come up with their own prompt. Blank outlines can also be used as a cover in case you wish to assemble the characters into a flipbook style, rather than a 3D craftivity.
A rubric is also included for formative or summative assessment.
Completed characters are a fabulous way to decorate your classroom or bulletin boards. It’s a great way to have your students build a display they are proud to share.
You have three different options for printing (you want your characters to be sturdy enough to stand on their own):
Print on white construction paper
Print on cardstock
Print on regular paper, then glue onto construction paper and cut out around the character shape
For easier completion, be sure students complete each page BEFORE they assemble (cut and glue) the character.
