This is a graphic organizer that I do with students at the beginning of The Kite Runner unit. I have found that students sometimes get the main characters confused. This activity allows students to discover similarities and differences between Amir and Hassan. There are several different ways to do this activity. This year, I gave students post-it notes and asked them to each write down a similarity or difference between Amir and Hassan. Then, they posted the post-it notes on a large chart that I created. Finally, students wrote down all of the answers that we can up with as a class.
