The Giver Body Biography Bundle is filled with all you need to teach and promote the amazing characters from this well known middle school novel. The character studies will give your students plenty of opportunities for creativity. For the first time, you’ll experience the unique approach of using a collaborative group poster, Lois Lowry’s, The Giver, textual evidence, research, and the body biography project!
This characterization project is great for upper elementary and middle school. The project bundle includes 8 characters. Give your students a relevant and modern experience while promoting the 4 C’s and achievement. Leave the body biographies displayed all year long. I adapted the body biography concept to align with citing textual evidence, character traits, research, and inference skills.
Includes 8 choices:
★ each poster is a character from the novel. Featuring fun but mature images- appealing to all grades. In line art for your students to add color and design.
★ The poster is 32 inches high by 10 inches wide. It requires 4 pages each.
★ 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).
★ The teacher set up directions, learning objective/learning outcomes, background, tips, and CCSS. Includes the completed example for Jonas.
