Lesson: Character Traits and Analyzing Details and Drawing Conclusions
Objective: Students will be able to analyze character traits and details in order to present a character from "The Secret Zoo"
Standard/Code/Name: Analyzing Details and Character Traits to draw conclusions.
DO NOW: Which one of the characters do you relate with the most? Why? This can be any character; human or animal. Which one do you most admire?
Opening (5-10 minutes): We have done a lot with analyzing details and character traits. We have talked about relationships and been able to continually show these relationships on our Character Wheel (which is looking awesome by the way), and we have also met a lot of character within the book. Today is our chance to highlight the characters that we enjoy the most (good or bad) and present these characters on our own t-shirts.
In order to make our t-shirts there are a set of guidelines or rules we need to follow in order to make them look awesome!
FRONT of T-shirt must include:
- Story title
- Character’s Name
- Picture of the Character
- Description of the Character
RIGHT SLEEVE must include:
· Strengths of the Character
LEFT SLEEVE must include:
· Weaknesses of the Character
BACK must include:
· A Character Wheel with relationships to three other characters
· Description of the three relationships
Model all these various guidelines needed with a shirt that you have created for another character in a different book.
Also, hand out the rubric for this project (see attached file) and go through that.
Guided Practice (WE DO):
If students have any questions this is the time to ask.
Students should get the opportunity to grade the example you made of the Character T-Shirt, using a blank rubric (see attached file).
Independent Practice (YOU DO): Students start their project.
