A Christmas Carol character activity
This is a popular activity based on one originally developed by the Collaborative Learning Project. It can be used for various age groups and with learners at a range of fluency levels in English.
It involves each member of the class reading some basic information about a character from ‘A Christmas Carol’ by Charles Dickens and then introducing themself to others as that character. The cards are organised by colour into 8 sets of 4, so it is suitable for a class of up to 32. Learners are encouraged to internalise the information on the card and produce it in their own words rather than just reading it aloud.
