BRIEF
OUTLINE: Students develop characters by selecting qualities, drawing their creation, and describing it to the class.  

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. Demonstrate the worksheet with the students by reading through the sentences and allowing the class to vote on the qualities. (This is best done with a projector or large print out of page 1 so that the kids can see clearly.)
  2. Draw your character according to the chosen qualities.  (To save time, do this before class.)
  3. Hand out the worksheet.  Be sure sure to have students write all qualities before they begin drawing. 
  4. When students are finished, allow them to show off their character by explaining it to the class or to friends using the sentences from part one.  

 

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • Know how to demonstrate each characteristic before class.  For example, if your character is a student, draw a backpack or a uniform.  If you character is not kind, draw them kicking a flower. 

 

TIPS/CAUTIONS:

  • Be sure to set time limits. Students will often take forever to draw a character.
