Help students to visualize and describe the characters in
Gathering Blue, by Lois Lowry using these posters. There are eleven line art posters and eleven colored posters. Students can fill in the information and color the images as they read the novel.
Excellent way for students to use actual phrases (text evidence) from the novel when describing the characters.
Teachers can reduce the size of the poster to 50% and students can tape or glue them into a notebook. Teachers could also reduce the size and double side the pages to make a Gathering Blue Character Scrapbook.
**Note: The illustrations of Christopher and The Singer contain spoiler images!! Do NOT give these to students until you are done with the novel.**
