Scholastic’s Character Scrapbook offers a good template that elementary school students can use to write about and reflect on the characters in their favorite stories. The template is quite simple to use. Students enter the name of a story and the name of their favorite character on the first page. On the next pages students list ten attributes of the character. The Character Scrapbook also allows students to create pictures of their favorite characters.
As you can see in the image above, Scholastic’s Character Scrapbook doesn’t limit students to human characters. Students can write about and create images of animal characters too.
