⭐ Theodore Roosevelt Sensory Figure Example
A sensory figure is a drawing of a historical, living, or fictional figure with first-person descriptions of what they might have thought, seen, heard, touched, said, felt, or otherwise experienced during their lifetime. Students “show what they know” about the figure by writing 1-2 sentence descriptions for their figure’s thoughts, feelings, and actions. After writing the descriptions, students connect them to the part of the body to which it most closely relates. For example, a feeling might be connected to the heart. The descriptions should be specific to the historical figure’s life, not generic statements that could apply to anyone. Students should be encouraged to address several topics in their descriptions instead of repeating information.
Sensory figures are perfect for:
- using for interactive notebooks
- engaging students to organize information and demonstrate knowledge for research or assessments
- allowing students to have a deeper, more empathetic understanding of the figure's experiences
- adapting to meet a variety of student needs
- reinforcing vocabulary
- sharing with partners or doing a gallery walk to see classmates' work
