These elements of fiction cubes are a fun and interactive way for students to creatively build a story! Included are a set of printable templates for cubes/dice that are easy to assemble and use! There are also blank cubes/dice that you can input your own suggestions/options for the elements. I have also included the activity sheet that I used along with the dice in order to guide the use of the cubes and the creation of their story.
This is a zipped folder download which includes:
-Elements of Fiction Cubes- With suggested options
-Elements of Fiction Cubes- Blank
-Building a Story-Activity Sheet Graphic Organizer
-Directions for the Activity and use of the cubes
I developed these cubes to use with my students in order to inspire their imagination when it came to building up the elements of their stories. I wanted a way to make some of the elements random so that they would need to creatively tie them together as they write.
There are multiple variations of how you can choose to adapt or differentiate this activity. I have included files that you can edit as you need and can use some of or part of in a lesson.
