Students will learn all about the importance of setting in stories through this engaging and captivating packet!

In this packet, you will find:

  • a special letter and 10 setting photographs from a world traveler (Students will identify the setting in each photograph.)
  • Storybook Travel Journal (Students will “travel” to different settings in books and record what they see using their “Storybook Travel Journal.”)
  • Draw and Write activity sheets (Only the character is in the picture, so students have to draw a setting and write a story to match the character.)
  • Read and Draw (Students will read the short text and then draw a setting to match the text. This is a great way to get students to visualize!)
  • See the Setting Picture Cards: Have students work in pairs. Give each student 1 sheet of blank paper. Student 1 will describe the setting on the card (they are NOT to show their partner the card) by saying, “I see ____, I see _____.” Student 2 is to draw a picture based on Student 1’s descriptions. Then, after Student 2 finishes drawing, Student 1 can reveal the card. This is an excellent way to show how important details and descriptions are in stories.

All of these activities align with the following Grade 1 English Language Arts Reading Literature Standard:

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.1.7 Use illustrations and details in a story to describe its characters, setting, or events.
