Add a little fun to ANY novel, play, or short story with this easy-to-use worksheet where students choose two characters and determine their astrological signs based on an analysis of the characters’ actions. Text-based evidence is required as students support their astrological sign choices.
Is Atticus Finch a Libra? Could Hamlet have been a Capricorn? Let your students decide!
This 2-page file (printable PDF & Google Drive versions) includes a blank form and a completed sample to show students, if you wish. The sample is from my students’ study of Romeo & Juliet, showing that Juliet is definitely a Leo and Romeo’s probably a Gemini. The worksheet, though, is designed to work with ANY piece of literature.
Hope you enjoy this activity, which works with sixth graders through high school seniors.
