A little character building Activity

August 12, 1998

Choose some favorite characters from books you have read. Take one character at a time and write down everything you know about that character. Include such things as birth date, friends, appearance, achievements, etc.

If it is a historical character, find out about the times in which he or she lived. Create an informational poster with drawings, facts and descriptions. Or you could make a "Wanted" poster and design it on the computer.

Save your projects for help with book reports or reading projects.
