Activity Overview


A fun way to get your students to connect with and understand the two main characters is to have them compare and contrast their qualities.

Students can use the text to find character traits and physical traits of Pandora and Seabold. Students can work individually or in pairs to research and compile a list of evidence. Once students have traits for each character, they can compare/contrast. Students will describe the traits they compiled about Seabold on one side and the traits they discovered of Pandora on the other. The traits that they both share will go in the middle.


Here is an example:

  • Pandora: lighthouse keeper
  • Man: sailor
  • Both: love the ocean
