This activity will allow students to develop an understanding of characters in a more comprehensive manner. When students know which characters are important to the plot and climax in a story it helps to build the readers understanding of the text. This also allows students to make real world connections and relate to the characters in a book much like they would in a movie. Mental images can be used by the reader to comprehend character(S) thoughts, moods, intentions, and feelings.
In a follow up to our last lesson about summarizing key elements form Charlotte's web today we will be focussing on Character traits from Charlotte's Web.
This activity will allow students to develop an understanding of character traits that include personality traits as well as physical traits. Students will use characters’ actions and/or dialogue from the text to determine character traits.
