The Great Gatsby Character Analysis Posters | Body Biography Project


Have your students analyze characters from F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby 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 poster.

Posters will showcase your students’ body of work after completing each character’s biography.

Additionally, students will learn the importance of collaboration and effective communication.

There are seven characters included in this resource:

  • Nick Carraway
  • Daisy Buchanan
  • Tom Buchanan
  • Jay Gatsby
  • Jordan Baker
  • Myrtle Wilson
  • George Wilson

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″.
