Project Focus: character motivations, external physical traits, and internal character traits
**This HANDS-ON PROJECT, divided into 3 activities, engages students as they follow detailed instruction to think like an author and create their own protagonist and antagonist. Students use graphic organizers and respond to prompts as they brainstorm realistic characters; they connect and take ownership through a guided creative writing activity at the end of the project.**
**Includes pre-filled “Character Genie” foldable that guides each student through the character development game at their own pace! Have students fold 1 class set, or each student can fold and keep their own Character Genie.
--Print 2-sided for a ready-to-go, engaging activity OR copy at 85%, 1-sided, to glue into interactive notebooks.
--Provides a great opportunity for student collaboration; have them work in pairs!
--Students love sharing and discussing how and why they created their characters!
**BONUS: Includes printable Character Genie Template for students to create their own unique genie. (Not included on rubric — works great as extra credit, tutorials, or a lesson extension!)
