Introduce Story Characters to Your Students

Characters are one of the most important elements of stories. Without characters, there is no story! So if you’re getting ready to teach your early years students about the role that characters play in a story, then you’ve come to the right place!

This comprehensive teaching presentation has been designed to teach your students all about story characters. It is written in age-appropriate language and contains visuals on every slide to help keep your little learners engaged throughout. 

Ready-Made Lessons on Characters Traits

This 16-slide presentation addresses the following content:

  • What are characters?
  • What are main characters?
  • Types of characters (people, animals, make-believe creatures, non-living things)
  • External traits
  • Internal traits (actions, feelings, thoughts)

The presentation includes student activities to help students demonstrate their understanding of the concepts presented. These activities include:

  • Character or Not? – Students look at the pictures on the slide and discuss if the image is a character or not.
  • Identifying External Traits – Students read the short text and discuss the external traits of the character in the text.
