iPad - Technology Integration - Character Analysis Mind Map

Students use the iPad app "Popplet" (free or paid version) to identify and describe a character's actions, thoughts,and motivations by creating a mind map.

Students create boxes, "Popples" in the Popplet app to enter text and images. Students add a central Popple box and add the character's name and picture.

Students organize additional Popples around the central Popple to show some of the chosen character's traits.

Students add details and specific examples describing the traits.
