Background: While working as a high school/middle school para, we were asked to create study guides for students in our special education program. However, we quickly discovered ALL students could benefit from the visuals! Soon, teachers from different grades and subjects were requesting custom cartoon visuals to assist students. Teachers loved having something they could save for future use and students seemed to really enjoy the quirky style/easy study reference.

Making or Using a Character Map will teach students to...


visualize and differentiate characters

organize character relationships

visualize setting, time period, and mood of book

consider important factors to remember when reading a book

identify different character connections

show general information (author, title, genre, setting)


Finished Character Maps can....

be used as quick reference before book quizzes and tests

used as reference during book discussions

used as reference while working on homework

used as a supplemental study guide 

used to remember, identify, and differentiate character names and physical traits

help with understanding and identification while reading book

help students visualize characters


After initial project, students can...


create their own maps with ease (as regular assignments)

refer to Character Map Guide Book to create future maps

help other students create maps

visually connect characters and relationships

use simple symbols and visuals to represent ideas and information

use the same concepts to create maps digitally (using computer programs and images found online to represent characters)

TOU- Who can use the Character Maps Activity Kit Pages?
