Our Compare and Contrast Characters’ Experiences lesson plan teaches students strategies for identifying characters’ experiences and compare and contrast them with other characters. During this lesson, students are asked to use Venn diagrams to organize their comparing and contrasting. Students are also asked to illustrate their own story to show specific characters’ experiences in a story.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify main characters in a story, will be able to compare and contrast the experiences and adventures of the characters, and will be able to analyze how each character responds to the events in the story.
