Quite A Character!

Who is your favorite comic strip character? Why do you like this character? How would you describe this character to someone who has never read the comic strip?

Draw or paste a picture of the character on a piece of paper. Write down three words that describe how the character looks.

Next write down three words about the character’s personality (Is he/she smart? Funny?)

When you describe someone’s personality, you are describing their character. Your character is how you act and how you treat other people. Do you show other people you care about them? Do you cooperate and play fair? Are you honest and courageous? Do you pay attention to your own feelings as well as others’ feelings? Are you a responsible person? Do you keep trying even when the going gets rough?
