A great activity to give to students at any point in the play!
Each student will choose a character and design the t-shirt that character would wear at a specific point in the play. This activity encourages critical thinking and inference-making skills as students will be required to defend/explain their design choices. You can alter your expectations (e.g. require use of quotations as support) depending on the grade and skill level of students.
Alternatively, you could do this as a cooperative learning activity by assigning a character to small groups of students. As a group, they would have to discuss the character and design the t-shirt together. Have them present their designs and display their creations in the classroom!
Unleash your students' creativity. I'm always thrilled with the results!
