Product Description
So— you don’t have a classroom set for this novel. No problem, read the novel to your students and play the game to assess listening skills.
You can play this game with your students after you finish reading chapters 3, 6, 9, and then the whole book. There are four different sets of character cards. The character description changes in each set. Each character card identifies the set it belongs to for sorting purposes. There are a total of 91 character cards.

If you have more than 20 or 22 students you can use cards from set one when playing with set two, and set two when playing with set three, and so on. Or, the students without cards get into the game by guessing the character description and taking the card from a player already in the game.
There are several ways to play this game and instructions are included. You could also create your own rules.
The characters cards are made by first printing the name then reversing each sheet of paper and printing the character description. Fold the paper so that the character description is inside the fold. You can laminate these character cards and hang them on your bulletin board. Just draped over a string or elastic rope. (I found the perfect material at Walmart in the craft section of their store). Students can select the characters from the bulletin board to play the game.
