Character Map

I created this character map that I use during stations.  I copy the Character Traits on the back and have them highlight the traits that describe the character.  Then, they write them on the front of the page in the Character Traits section.  They draw an illustration of the character in the middle of the page.  I love it because I can use it during stations for the story of the week, whole group, or they can even complete it independently using the main character from their AR book.

  2. I have my students make "Wanted Posters" for character maps. For instance, when Huckleberry Finn went missing the students had to draw a picture and give a description (plus a reward). It was fun. You can find "make your own wanted posters" online with a simple Google Search.

  27. This character map will definitely help students realize a lot of things about their character attributes. Will definitely share this to my colleagues via urgent college writing so they can include it on their activity.
