Emotional Timeline

  • The idea behind this activity is to chart the main events in the main character’s life as told in the story being read. As you read you record the main events that occur in the character’s life. These should include important or significant things that may be good or bad in the life of the character. When all events have been recorded from the story, you chart them on a line graph according to how good or bad they are in the life of the main character.
  • When all events are charted you can see the how the emotions of the main character changed throughout the book. You can discuss the good and bad things that have happened to the character. Were there more good or more bad events?
