Authors frequently hide a lot of meaning in a character's name. For this activity, Santa's reindeer names provide a fun yet productive lesson in character traits.
Students are directed to investigate what the names of the reindeer might suggest about the animals themselves, using what they discover to create a business card for each reindeer (or as many of them as you decide to require).
This one-page project emphasizes both reference materials and student creativity. This is a great activity for winter holidays or Christmas. Reindeer names are taken from the famous poem "'Twas the Night before Christmas."
