Comparing Characters

Here is an anchor chart I created for a 4th grade classroom. After reading the story, Moon Runners, they will use context clues (students filled out grpahic organizers during the reading of the story that listed the characters thoughts, actions, and words) to infer character traits! I laminated the chart so the teacher can write the traits the kids come up with in the silhouette of that character.

Students can work in pairs or groups and using their own silhouttes write in what their character traits would be in colored chalk. At the end when they share their character traits with the class have them give an example of why that trait fits them or describes them. These would make a pretty hallway display!
