Description of Project
Character Cutout is a project that will introduce others to an important character in your book in a larger than life way!
- Choose one main character from your book and turn him or her into an oversized paper doll.
- Have a friend/family member help you trace the outline of your body onto a large piece of paper.
- Search through your book for the physical characteristics (eye color, hair color, facial features, age, clothes, etc.) of your character. Then visually represent them on your paper doll using any available materials you have. You can draw and color them on with crayons, colored pencils, markers, paint, or use construction paper to cut them out.
- Visually represent at least 2 props or accessories that are important to your character and add them to your doll. Attach at least 3 notecards that describe your character's personality. On each notecard include a title, an explanation/description, and a quote from your book to help support your idea. Include the page numbers.
- On your Character Cutout include your character's name, the title of your book, the author, and your name.
Tips and Ideas
- Think about other materials you can use to dress your character; old t-shirts, fabric scraps, recycled materials, etc.
