Activity Overview


In order to demonstrate an understanding of comparing and contrasting characters, students should choose two characters and identify their similarities and differences using a T-Chart.

In this example, Karana is being compared to her tribe. Karana cares about animals and people; she jumps off a ship when she realizes her brother has been left behind. The tribe is not caring; they do not care who is left behind. Karana and her tribe are similar in how they break tradition. In order to survive, Karana must break tribal tradition, which says women cannot make weapons. The tribe also was forced to break tradition; at a time of great loss, the tribe gives women tasks usually designated for men.
