December Character Comprehension Project: Winter Wonders
by- Connie Casserly
The whole objective of this FREE activity is for students to have fun showing their understanding of the elements of literature while teachers retain their sanity during this month of emotional highs and lows.
Although I offer time-frame suggestions in these Teacher Notes, I keep them general. My classroom colleagues should adapt this project to meet their needs and to address the abilities and skill levels of their students.
First, students choose a seasonal character from the list of stories, movies and television shows (or one of their own-with teacher approval). Next, they select a project to complete. Each of the six choices combines visual and written components. After they complete their projects, students will present them to the class.
This product includes Teacher Notes with Common Core Standards. Grading Rubrics for both the project and the presentations are also offered.
This activity is sure to hook students while they strengthen their understanding of the elements of literature and their analytic thinking skills.
