Students created dream jars from Roald Dahl's story "The BFG." This teacher has created a bookshelf bulletin board display, along with a large drawing of the BFG, to showcase her students' dream jar projects.
This teacher did a great character study on the BFG. I think that's an excellent choice for character study! I also like to stress the difference between character traits and actions, then connect the two. Awesome anchor chart from oneextradegree.
