Hello! I love the idea of using a worksheet like this to teach students about characterization. The graphics give the students a visual to help them understand what to write inside each shape. I also like that you separated the characteristics into categories. Rather than just creating a bulleted list of general characteristics, the student must distinguish between the character's values, physical features, actions, etc. Overall, this worksheet would allow students to develop a well-rounded list of character attributes. I only gave it a 4-star rating because I think it would be helpful to include at least minimal written directions on the sheet for students who learn better through text. Other than that, I love the idea!
