This activity is the perfect way to both celebrate finishing a novel and test student understanding of character.
A character party is exactly what it sounds like! All of the characters get together to chat, mingle, snack, etc. As the students talk with one another, they must use their knowledge and understanding of My Brother Sam is Dead characters to treat each other like the character on their name cards WITHOUT saying the character’s name. The goal is for each student to correctly guess which character they are.
This file includes activity instructions, character name cards, and a character party question sheet for students to fill out at the end of the activity.
