Two options for a hands-on activity! Students create a Character or Story Item mobile to accompany the text. The Character Mobile can work well as both a mid-story activity (such as review of the characters) and a culminating project. The Story Item Mobile is great as a culminating activity to review symbol, motif, and important details. Rubrics included.
•Teacher Notes: Examples of items of importance from select stories
•Story Item Mobile student printable with rubric
•Character Mobile student printable with rubric
•Real-life example using the 12 Angry Men characters
Students will need hangers (wire hangers work the best—white is great if you can find them)
String (kite string or other thin white string is good for hanging)
Tape or single-hole punches work well for hanging the items to the mobile
