The character analysis worksheet lists characters in Rick Riordan’s The Lightning Thief. Students will select a character from the text in which they would like to analyze. They will select a quote from the text that demonstrates how their chosen character exhibits the following traits in the novel: physical, philosophical, emotional, social and intellectual. Students will also list the page number where the quote is found in the text.
There are two versions of the worksheet with different words to describe each trait. This is meant to allow students to better understand the traits- if needed. One worksheet asks students to find quotes for each of the traits listed above (physical, philosophical, emotional, social and intellectual). The second worksheet uses the following wording to describe the traits: physical trait, treats others, acts towards others, feels about things, and way of thinking.
One thing I really like about this activity is that some students select the same quote but have different perspectives for which trait it supports. The class discussion for this activity allows students to read their quotes and share their understanding as to why they believe it supports a particular trait.
Each worksheet is approximately two pages.
