Looking for an engaging PowerPoint to teach character traits? Make teaching character traits fun with this engaging 25 slide animated PowerPoint. This character analysis PowerPoint has 25 slides to teach a character trait through an example that uses description, a photograph, and synonyms. There are also 25 correlating posters. Enhance the learning with the five worksheet printables that can be used to practice character traits.


Start with this animated PowerPoint to teach 25 basic character traits.

  • Each slide starts with a photograph of a person displaying a character trait.
  • Then an example of this trait in action is given through an example paragraph.
  • Then the trait is revealed.
  • Four synonyms for each character trait are revealed as well.
  • Each slide has sound (which can be turned off by lowering the volume).
  • The visuals and examples are ideal for developing and expanding student vocabulary and provide comprehensible input for English Language Learners.

There are a total of 25 slides, each depicting a character trait. The 25 character traits are the most commonly seen in text and movies, such as honesty, bravery, superstitious, and determination.



  • 25 slide animated PowerPoint
  • Presenter's Notes to guide the teacher through each slide
  • 25 accompanying posters that complement the PowerPoint
  • 5 Printables for students
  • Character Traits Poster
  • Fairy Tale Character Cards to discuss character traits of fairy tale characters


The slides have been reformatted to make 25 portrait posters of each character trait. They are in color. Print once, laminate, and use for years.

Included are five suggestions for using the posters

  • Guess My Trait
  • Act it Out
  • Whose Trait Is It?
  • Trait Sort
  • Superhero Trait Quickwrite


There are five printables to use with the PowerPoint or with the posters. They are to be used to further and deepen the understanding of character traits and how they influence the story plot.

They include

  • Characterize Me! (analyze a story character)
  • Trait Example (show a character trait in action)
  • Trait Talk (show words used by a character with a particular trait)
  • 5 Degrees of Traits (shades of meaning with character traits or adjectives)
  • Traits in Action (show cause and effect through character traits)

Each printable is generic, making it usable with any character trait, character, person, or story.


Also included is a poster to explain what a character trait is. For one of the poster activities, there are 12 Fairy Tale Character cards to match fairy tale characters to traits.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Jennifer K. says, "Easy to use resource."

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Shelly M. says, "It is so hard to teach character traits. THIS resource is fabulous!!"

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Ashley F. says, "I downloaded this in a crunch because my students finished what I had planned for the day early, go figure lol. But they loved this power point, working through it to figure out the character traits. And it was a good vocabulary builder because there were words on the power point that they were not familiar with."
