See the standards RL3.3 and RL.4.3 come alive with this fun culminating project and craftivity. Students will 'get inside the character's head' by examining teacher selected or student selected texts, finding text evidence to support their ideas of the character's traits!
Students will create a fun and creative character based on the one they are reading about. They will describe in their own words how the character acts, what the character says, and how the character feels. They will then go back in the text and support their claims using text evidence, citing specific quotes from the text. Afterwards, they can make their character come alive by creating this fun craftivity! Included are three days of lesson plans to complete this fun activity!
