This is fun, engaging Creative Writing activity where your students will unwittingly construct a character, in an intriguing step-by-step process. Classmates then collaborate to create a unique story. Over three days, students (i) Develop characters; (ii) Write a rough draft story; (iii) Edit their work for a good copy.
This is an self-contained, ready-to-go Creative Writing Mini-Unit that can easily be extended to suit your needs.
