This resource includes 5 days worth of lesson plans and activities, graphic organizer, craftivity, centers & more! Both print and digital included! Take a look at the preview for more details!
Lesson 1: Students are understanding the vocabulary behind analyzing characters and use a sorting mat, cards, and provided stories to better understand what it means to study a character.
Lesson 2: Students analyze evidence that has already been identified for them. Stories and underlined evidence are provided and students must use the coloring key to then identify which character aspect is being shown and underline it in that color!
Lesson 3: Students must evaluate statements made about the characters in the stories provided. They use agree/disagree cards and sorting mats to determine whether they agree or disagree with the statement
Lesson 4: Students create a large character wheel together as a class. Together they work in groups to analyze a character of a provided story and each group is in charge of one piece of the wheel. Together the pieces create one large fun display!
Lesson 5: Students are piecing together a story to read and study the character. Each piece of the story provides them with specific evidence and students must create a foldable and match the evidence pieces to the aspect they match with.
All activity are more hands on than normal ‘worksheets’. Direction pages and real photographs are also included! A graphic organizer, bookmark, anchor chart, craftivity, & center are all also included!
