This engaging and fun lesson will help your students not only learn about foil characters, but also remember the concept for a long time! The PowerPoint includes notes on the literary element, foil character, a clip from a popular TV series highlighting an example of foil characters (PG rated), a fun activity using tin foil that will help your students never forget the concept, and a writing activity.
This has always been one of my students' favorite lessons!
