students with their characters

Sixth grade advanced language arts students read a novel of their choice with their Literature Circle groups. As they read, they had different roles to prepare for their group discussions. As a culminating project, students created a “Life-Size Character” of the protagonist of their novel by incorporating skills that they’ve learned so far this year. On these characters, students used textual evidence from their novel to include a character analysis, a character comparison, a plot diagram, a persuasive summary, the theme of the novel, and an analysis of symbols and allusions incorporated in the novel. Students had a fun time creating and presenting their Life-Size Characters!
