Think of a pretend character that is realistic. (It could happen in real life). Give your character a name. What does he/she look like? Where does he/she live? What does he/she like to do? Does he/she have friends? What character traits can you think of? Is your character nice? Bossy? Sassy? Cool? Athletic? Silly? Imagine the trouble your character gets into! What’s the problem in the story? Use any seesaw tool to show us your character!
