This activity is one of my favorite ways for students to dig deep into character analysis.
This activity can work with so many different texts. I use this activity three times a year, and the students love it.
They choose a character from a novel or play and they draw a body on a piece of butcher block paper. The student then analyzes different aspects of the character (strengths, weaknesses, motivation, personality, etc.) and presents the information artistically based off of the directions given. I normally have students work in groups for this activity, but as long as they have the directions and a copy of the novel or play you'll be using, they could do this at home on their own.
The students do need to use the text to support the adjectives they choose for their selected character.
This is a fun, creative, different way (using common core standards) to analyze characters. My students always love this assignment.
See the preview for a terrible, quick drawing I did that looks similar to what students will produce.
