Description

Introduce the concept of personality traits to young students with our Personality Traits Lesson Plan.  This informative lesson prepares students to identify examples of personality traits, and recognize the traits in a character from a story or book.  Generalize understanding of the concept and engage analytical skills as students consider the similarities in behavior and language of people they know with the same personality traits.

Sample Classroom Procedure / Teacher Resources Snippet:

  1. Each student chooses one index card/paper showing a trait. Ask each student what the word means. Allow every student a chance to pick a card and explain the trait. Allow other students to help when necessary.
  2. Ask students what all of the words have in common.
  3. Allow for responses and discussion. Lead the discussion to Personality Traits.
  4. Collect the index cards/papers for use in the closing step of the lesson.
  5. Distribute the Personality Traits content page. Read and review the information with the students. Allow students to share responses to the opening question.
  6. Use additional examples if necessary to ensure students’ understanding.
  7. Stress the difference between a character’s traits in a story versus their emotions. Also, tell students traits of a character can change over time.
  8. Distribute the Activity page. Review the instructions. Review the example. Ask if they can think of others for Helpful. Pair the students.
  9. Remind students to write more than one or two sentences. Tell them to think about people they know with the same personality traits and how they act, and what they say.
  10. Once all are completed, allow each pair of students to share an example of actions and words for a trait. (Answers will vary.)
