This is a center that could be used all year long. All you have to do is make
copies! This activity was created for use in a literacy center that addresses making
connections with the main character in a text. It is meant to be used only
after instruction for that skill. It could also be used as a whole group
activity! In the activity, students are asked to choose character traits that describe the main character from a selection of traits. Then, they choose traits that describe the students themselves. Finally, students choose traits that apply to both the students and the main character in the text. Students then glue the character traits to the appropriate section of the Venn diagram.
