These worksheets allow students to define the attributes of characters within a story.

Help your students start to understand how authors can make their characters well-rounded and compelling by using these character analysis worksheets. Students will search through the text to find examples of quotes, actions, thoughts, and appearance of the character they are focusing on, and the reactions and discussions of other characters to and about them. They will start to learn how these attributes affect the presentation of the story, as well as shaping the reader’s reactions and expectations.

Note: These sheets work very well when used in conjunction with the Story Map Graphic Organizers located elsewhere on this site.
