Activity Overview


As students read, a storyboard can serve as a helpful character reference log. This character map allows students to recall or record relevant information about important characters. When reading a story, small attributes and details frequently become important as the plot progresses. With character mapping, students will record this information, helping them follow along and catch the subtleties which make reading more enjoyable!


Though there are many characters in the tales of King Arthur, this activity lists the most central. Each one is linked to King Arthur in a very different, yet special way. In this exercise, students will explain those relationships to Arthur. In the area titled "Defining Moment", students should use examples from the text to show how that character demonstrates their heroic or villainous ways. To increase the exercise's depth, it is easy to add more characters.
