Protagonists and Supporting Characters

Protagonists and Supporting Characters

When there are many characters in a story, how do you know which one is the main character? In this worksheet, children learn how to spot the protagonist and supporting characters in a work of fiction. They then follow a series of prompts to identify, describe, and draw the main character in a book they have read. This versatile template, designed for third and fourth graders, is a fun, creative way to get young readers to use context clues as they read.
