Activity Overview

As students read, a storyboard can serve as a helpful character reference log. This log (also called a character map) allows students to recall relevant information about important characters. A story like The One-Eyed Giant has many characters to keep track of and a character log can help keep them straight.

For a fun idea, try using a character map like the one below to conduct an internet research project. Students can research the Greek gods, goddesses, and other characters in the story, to learn more information than what the book tells them.

Here is an example for Odysseus:
