Compare & Contrast Characters: Graphic organizer and prompt that works for characters in any story you are reading. This activity page works best for students in the upper elementary or middle grades. Students will complete a Venn diagram to compare 2 story characters. They are prompted to write a paragraph explaining the similarities and differences between the characters in the novel, short story, anthology story, or picture book. This is a 1 page activity that can be used over and over for many different story selections.
I have used this worksheet to compare characters in passages such as Winn-Dixie, Pink and Say, Amelia and Eleanor Go for a Ride, Hercules Quest, and more.
