7 character organizers in 2 versions for - Curly, George, Slim, Curly's wife, Lennie, Crooks, Candy
94 character traits and physical description words
There are two ways this activity can be used:
You can use it as a set of organizers – use the ones with the empty blocks – students need to come up with their own character traits for the given characters and write them into the blocks.
You can use it as sorting activity – cut out the provided character traits, mix them all up, and ask the students to attach the traits to the character they think it suits the most.
The traits are organized according to which character they belong to. You can use it as a key. However, feel free to accept a different arrangement provided by your students as some traits may apply to more than one character. If the student is able to justify his/hers choice I usually accept it.
There are 2 empty blocks for each character, so the students can add 2 more character traits to the character if they feel some important trait is missing on the list.
