The Crucible Body Biography Bundle is filled with all you need to teach and promote the amazing characters from the timeless and relevant drama. This body biography activity for the play, written by, American author, Arthur Miller, is one of the most requested I receive from teachers everywhere. Your students will find plenty of opportunity for creativity. Teacher and students will experience the unique approach of using a collaborative poster, your unit study, textual evidence, research, and the body biography project!
The project bundle includes 7 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.
