This is an inference and characterization activity.
As an activation activity students will write down 5 things that can be found in their bedroom. Then they will switch with a partner and the partner must infer qualities, personality, hobbies, etc. of the student. Students can then pair share about whether their inferences were correct.
As a follow up activity students will fill out the second handout about a character in a story they've read. This activity will work with any story. I used a myth which was fun because the students had to determine what kind of items the god would have in their bedroom based on what they learned about the character's actions, thoughts, relationships, appearance, etc. in the text.
