blue bullet point A Christmas Carol is a traditional novel that is often read during December. There are many different adaptations of this novel for different reading levels. There are also different versions of this popular Christmas movie available. The most recent version of this movie came out in November 2009, starring Jim Carrey.

Scrooge Character Reading Book Report

Above: I love this student's Scrooge project and the
details that he used in drawing his character's face.

blue bullet point Your students will love creating a large visual image of Ebenezer Scrooge for this project for A Christmas Carol! The writing templates that I have designed fit inside on Scrooge's shirt and outside on his vest.

blue bullet point This Scrooge Body Character Project will provide you with all of the teaching resources that you need for your students to creatively write about Scrooge from A Christmas Carol.

blue bullet point For the main body section of this Scrooge project, each student will need a piece of construction paper that measures 12 inches x 18 inches. Students will also need construction paper to make the character's head, hands, and feet. In addition, my students sometimes bring in yarn and fabric from home for their character's hair and clothes.

blue bullet point Traditionally, requiring students to write about the main character of their book is a task that most students find quite boring. By using these Scrooge body shaped book report templates, your students will be enthusiastic about writing about Ebenezer Scrooge!

blue bullet point You will be amazed at some of the creative ideas that your students come up with as they are individualizing Scrooge's body to represent things that they read about him in A Christmas Carol.

blue bullet point Above: The matching 5 page display banner that is included in this set is below. It is hard to read the words in this small version of the banner. The main title is in Christmas lights font and says: Ebenezer Scrooge. The top smaller line says: Our Character Projects For:

blue bullet point This Christmas Carol lesson plans set includes assembly directions on how to prepare and assemble Scrooge's body. There are 3 pages of directions that show how to assemble this project with graphical images. Below is a sample of two of these pages. I have only shown the first step and the last step of the directions in this picture sample. The directions in this set are split up into 8 steps of graphical images that demonstrate how to cut and fold the construction paper.

Scrooge Body Character Project Directions

blue bullet point I believe that the writing process is important and that teachers should use process writing whenever possible. For this reason, my students never begin their projects by writing on their final draft templates, instead they write on first draft worksheets. Then, they edit and revise their work on their own, with a partner, or in individual writing conferences with me.

blue bullet point This Christmas Carol lesson plans set contains three worksheets for students to write their first drafts on (only two of them are shown below). On my first draft worksheets, I have designed the writing line spaces to match the spaces alloted on the final draft Scrooge body templates.

blue bullet point This Scrooge Body Character Project Set is designed so that each section fits onto the shirt and vest area of Scrooge's body. The writing sections for this project include:

  • Outside Vest Pocket: Title, Author, Name, and Date
  • Inside Middle of Shirt: If I Met Ebenezer Scrooge (If you met Ebenezer Scrooge, what advice would you give him? What activity would you choose to do with Ebenezer Scrooge if you met him? Try to think of something that would help change Scrooge and teach him an important lesson.
  • Inside Left Area of Shirt: Scrooge At the Beginning of the Book (Describe what Scrooge was like at the beginning of the book.)
  • Inside Right Area of Shirt: Scrooge At the End of the Book (Describe what Ebenezer Scrooge was like at the end of the book. How did he change after Marley’s visit and the visits by the spirits of Christmas Past, Christmas Present, and Christmas Yet to Come? What valuable lesson did Ebenezer Scrooge learn from these visits?)
  • Adjectives: Students write 10 descriptive adjectives about Scrooge and glue them on the outside of the his body.

blue bullet point Due to spelling differences in English (words like color/colour and favorite/favourite), there are two sets of downloads for these worksheets in this Christmas Carol lesson plans set, as well as the final draft templates and grading rubric. You can select the spelling that is used in the country that you are from.

blue bullet point These Christmas Carol lesson plans includes a grading rubric.

blue bullet point I believe that it is important for students to evaluate their own work, so my grading rubric contains both a student assessment and a teacher assessment component. When the students grade their work, they color in the faces. When the teacher grades the work, the teacher circles the small numbers in each box beside the faces. I often find that my students are harsher on themselves than I am, and that the grade that I give them is higher than they have scored themselves.
