Product Description
An Inquiry into…SETTING (Language Arts)
Appropriate for grades 4-7 & Homeschool


PURPOSE:
These activities will help your students to see that every aspect of the environment can have a major effect on the character, plot and mood of the story. Students will explore five aspects of setting: place, time, weather & atmosphere, social conditions and the setting’s influence.

WHAT’S INCLUDED:
This product contains:
         ☆5 Informational Slides containing 5 Aspects of Setting
         ☆A 5-flap Foldable for taking Notes on the Aspects
         ☆A set of Instructions for 5 fifteen-minute rotations exploring the Aspects
         ☆A Half-sheet Student Response Page for each Aspect

STORY:
At the beginning of each year, every teacher becomes bogged down with beginning of the year assessments, paperwork, open houses and parent-teacher conferences. A lot of the language arts content I teach at the beginning of the year is in a long and tedious PowerPoint note taking format. To spice things up, I thought I would add in a 5 activity rotation structure to learn setting in a new way. Students will explore settings from classic novels analyzing the five different aspects I mentioned above.

POSSIBLE EXTENSIONS:
Possible extensions are included in the file!

MATERIALS/PRE-REQS:
Besides this file, you may require:
         ☆A picture book for read aloud and reference
