There are 24 different characters in this file. Each one is described separately. This can be played as a card game, a person search or as a listening activity. Each description includes character information: clothing, job, likes, dislikes, etc. The character description is followed by some follow up questions, such as: What do you want to be in the future. Do you think being a musician is fun?
I have the cards laminated, each description and character separate. I put each description in a lanyard plastic pouch and each character in a lanyard plastic pouch. I give each student a description and a character, and they have 10 minutes to find a character and description that matches. So at the end of the 10 minutes the student should have on two lanyards, one with the character picture and one with the character description. Once they have only their character and description, they can sit down and answer the questions that follow the description.
In addition, a picture could be on the board of a person that they need to write a description for, and lastly, they write a description of a character that they can read to a classmate. The classmate would draw the character that they hear being described.
There are many ways to use these cards. You can pass out only the descriptions and have each student read one, and the other students in the class can draw characters that represent each character.
It could be used as a warm-up for a week, 5 descriptions a day (one day only 4) and at the end of the week, they could look back at all the pictures they drew and write a description about 2 of the characters they drew.
You can pre-pair the names of the characters and after each student has their character and description, the pre-pair characters could match up. Once matched, the 2 students that are together can write a story with both characters, and how they interact, become friends, etc.
