Character Analysis: New Year's Activity

PDF | 4 pages|Grades: 3 - 6

An activity booklet for students to infer how a character would bring in the new year.

In this New Year’s activity, students use evidence from a piece of text to infer how a character would bring in the new year.

After reading a fiction text in class (or independently), students will choose a character from the text and complete a set of seven activities using their chosen character.

To ensure that this resource is printed properly, be sure to set your printer to print:

  • front-to-back
  • flip along the short edge
  • choose ‘actual size’ instead of ‘fit to page’.

This activity works well when used in your reading centersbook clubs, or novel studies in the first few weeks of a new year.

Use the drop-down menu to choose between the color or black and white version.
