Refugee, by Alan Gratz Body Biography Project Bundle, Great for Characterization



This Refugee Body Biography Bundle is filled with all you need to teach and promote the amazing characters from the timeless and relevant novel. This novel resource is the most requested novel I receive from teachers everywhere. Here it is! Your students will find plenty of opportunity for creativity. Teacher and students will experience the unique approach of using a collaborative poster, your Refugee novel study, textual evidence, research, and the body biography project!

This project can be used any time of the year. The project bundle includes 3 characters. Give your students a relevant and modern experience while promoting the 4 C’s and achievement. Leave the body biographies up all year long! I adapted the body biography concept to align with citing textual evidence, character traits, research, and inference skills.

Includes 3 choices:
★ Each poster is a character from the novel. The original artwork is never seen before anywhere! Featuring fun but mature images- of Isabel, Josef, and Mahmoud. Appealing to all grades. In line art for your students to add color and design.
★ Poster is 32 inches high by 10 inches wide. It requires 4 pages each.
★ Rubric and Reflection Questions
★ Bonus – characterization pre-planning sheets for each character!
★ Student handout that explains each part of the body biography project (there are 12 parts).
★ Teacher set up directions, learning objective / learning outcomes, background, tips, and CCSS
