Character Traits PowerPoint: 32 Animated Paragraph Slides for Inferring Traits.
This PowerPoint consists of 32 animated slides, each with a paragraph that describes a character’s personality. The challenge is to infer a word that describes the character. In the PowerPoint, students are first presented with the paragraph. At this point, students can come up with words from their own heads. For those who are struggling, a click reveals three multiple choice options, making it easy to differentiate. A final click reveals the answer.
This would be a great activity to use with the whole class. Students can answer verbally, on individual white boards, with sign language (A, B, C), or on notebook paper. It could also be used with individuals at a computer. One fun way to extend the activity would be to asks students to come up with the opposite word.
Please note that this PowerPoint is in Show format and cannot be edited. Please download the free preview to see how the show works. The animation is the same on every slide in the show.
