Character maps are a helpful tool for students to use as they're reading, although they can also be used after completing a book. Avonlea is full of a variety of different characters, and Anne interacts with each and every one of them as she introduces change to the small town. In this activity, students will create a character map that highlights character and personality traits, challenges they face, and how they interact with Anne and change. Teachers may wish to have students look for other things, like a character's importance to the plot, and the templates and instructions can be changed accordingly.
