Activity Overview


Another great way to engage your students is through the creation of storyboards that depict the perspective of each character in a short story. By examining each character’s perspective, students can look more deeply at the author’s meaning.

Using a T-Chart, show examples from the text of what bad fortune means for two characters. On one side, show examples from Lemon’s life and on the other side, show examples from Greg’s. Use description boxes to explain the illustrations of each perspective or point of view, which you create.

Clicking "Use this Assignment" will copy both the example above and a blank template into your account. Feel free to use it as is, or to edit it for the level of your class. Printing it as worksheets for your students to complete while reading is a fast and easy way to incorporate this storyboard activity into your classroom.
