Activity Overview


This compare and contrast activity allows students to analyze the similarities and differences between two characters, settings, or objects. In this activity students will compare and contrast two characters: Mary and Colin. Students will take a closer look into these characters and develop a deeper understanding of their role and connection to the plot.

Compare and Contrast Mary and Colin


MaryColin
Mary is a spoiled, stubborn girl that demands everything from her Ayah. Colin gives orders to the servants and Dr. Craven.
Her mother did not want a little girl and demanded that the girl be kept away from her at all times. “My mother died when I was born and it makes him wretched to look at me. He thinks I don’t know, but I’ve heard people talking. He almost hates me.”
“It is very sad, now the poor beautiful thing is gone, to remember that many people never even knew that she had a child at all.” Ben Weatherstaff asks Colin if he has a hump on his back and if his legs are crooked.
