UPDATE: The PDF was redone so you can type directly into the text fields.
A lot of teachers have used the Facebook page activity to get students thinking about characters (or even historical figures), and I saw someone's idea online about doing an Instagram page. I like this idea because it forces the student to think like the character in a much deeper way. What would he/she deem photo-worthy? Would he take an artsy close-up of something or would he take a selfie? Would the photo be from an exotic location or would it be close to home? Moreover, there's spaces (like on Facbeook) for you to write comments/likes from people the character is friends with.
I put it on 11"x14" paper so they would be big enough to cut out, but you could easily print them smaller to save paper. I think these would make a really cool bulletin board for the hallway. Another thing I liked about this assignment is that, if you gave them enough time, the students could opt to draw a picture or stage an actual photo.
