Product Description
This comprehension activity facilitates a discussion around characters in a novel. It prompts students to go into more depth and to think about a character critically. Among other things, it requires the student to indentify both a character’s literal and figurative journey.

It can be used as a jumping off place for a written Reading Response. When writing, students can expand on this graphic activity, and back up their assertions about a character using evidence from the text.

A very versatile activity that crosses grade levels and can be used during whole or small group reading instruction, or as independent work.

I have uploaded a graphic of a “character” and a key designating what each body part represents in a character. You can also have students draw their own character outline on big easel paper (this allows for more writing as well). This works for animal characters as well
