Activity Overview


In this activity, students can create a character map for the characters. This should be rather straightforward since there are only two main characters in the story, Boris and Amos, and then two characters with supporting roles: the elephants. Students can describe their physical appearance, list character traits, and include evidence from the text to support their traits.

Here is an example for Amos:

Physical Appearance

  • a mouse
  • very tiny
  • covered in fur

Character Traits

  • loves the ocean
  • adventurous
  • a good friend

Evidence

  • "Boris admired the delicacy, the quivering daintiness, the light touch, the small voice, the gemlike radiance of the mouse."
