Character Analysis in 3-D
Rimonim students (grades 2-3) have been delving into the characters in their favorite books. Part of learning the importance of characters involves getting to know the characters’ problems and how to solve them. Students understand cause and effect, noting how a character's actions can make other things happen. Students have analyzed the positive and negative relationships that the characters have in their stories. They also learned about the lessons that the characters learned and how those lessons can relate to their own lives.
As a final project, students chose a character to analyze; they reflected upon that character’s relationships, problems, solutions, cause and effect, and the lessons they learned. Students compiled that information and glued it into 2 manila folders. Then the creativity began: they cut out heads, arms, and legs and colored them to match their character. These fantastic characters are now on display, where they can be “read” and enjoyed by other students and the faculty. For more photos, click HERE.
