Scythe Character Analysis Posters | Characterization | Body Biography


Have your students analyze characters from Neal Shusterman’s Scythe in a fun and engaging way: Character Collabs!

Your students will use several characterization methods to depict each character’s profile, demonstrate their understanding of the literature, and present their final work on a beautiful poster.

This Body Biography Project is a hands-on approach to learning that enhances retention and inspires students to tap into their creativity.

Students will engage with the novel on a deeper level, encouraging thinking critically, making inferences, and fostering empathy. Additionally, they will learn the importance of collaboration and effective communication.

There are 9 characters from the novel included in this resource:

  1. Scythe Faraday
  2. Scythe Goddard
  3. Scythe Curie
  4. Scythe Rand
  5. Scythe Chomsky
  6. Scythe Volta
  7. High Blade Xenocrates
  8. Rowan
  9. Citra

Project Steps:

1) To construct each poster, your students will work in groups to analyze their specific character.

2) Students will then transfer their findings to boxes on each poster.

3) Next, they will work together to color the pieces of the posters.

4) Lastly, students will tape together the final products.

Each poster is made up of six pieces of paper, which can be printed on regular copy paper or card stock.

Once taped together, each final product will be 28″ x 15″.
