For example, for The Three Little Pigs it could be asa simple as a piece of straw, wood, and a piece of brick. For certain items, drawings of the itemcan be included. Also inside the can should be the report form (see the back of this paper),NEATLY rolled up.Upon completion of the report, the student will be expected to share his/her character can andits contents with the rest of the class.

For the second part of the report you are to give a written explanation of why each item waschosen to represent the character and what that tells you about the character.Remember to state how the items connect to the character. For example, if I was doingGoldilocks, and I had included a tiny bowl of cereal, I WOULDNT just say that I included itbecause she ate cereal in the story. I would say that I included it because Goldilocks ate fromall three bowls of cereal belonging to the bears when she entered their house uninvited. Shecompletely finished baby bear’s porridge and took only bites from Mama and Papa’s bowls, butthey were too hot and too cold. The item shows how Goldilocks is a little selfish and does notthink of others.
