The Understanding Character interactive lesson was created to help students gain an understanding of characters in a story. By including tasks that allow the teacher to select any story or book to complete the Understanding Character lesson, the teacher can use this lesson format to teach understanding character for grades first through third. The teacher can select from seventy-nine slides that will help the students master understanding characters at a higher level. The lesson incorporated The Three Little Pig and The Grasshopper and the Ants into the lesson to demonstrate an understanding of characters with additional text resources that motivate students to learn the standard at a higher level. The lesson includes slides that incorporate the biography My Name is Gabriela into the lesson (Journeys Common Core, 2014) too. Science, social studies, and writing are integrated into the lesson too.
