Product Description
Plot Cards with different settings, characters, and plots ready for your students to use and write and/or act out their own stories. Also included is a Hiking in Plot Mountain activity to teach the elements of plot to your students.

Whether you are looking for a whole-class drama activity, a creative writing assignment for your literacy center, a springboard to teach more about plot, or simply a brain break, these cards will do the trick!

This Resource Includes:
•3 Teacher Pages with detailed instructions for both activities
•2 Hiking in Plot Mountain Student Worksheets for labeling the plot mountain
•1 Hiking in Plot Mountain Answer Key
•8 (5 ½" by 8 ½") Plot Cards (with different settings, characters, and plots plus student directions for Human Slideshow)
Narrator’s Script (a worksheet to guide students as they write their slideshow)

Human Slideshow: A Drama Activity:

1) Photocopy the Plot Cards on cardstock and
laminate (for future use)

2) Break students up into groups of 3 and distribute one
Plot Card and Narrator's Script per group.
Students can self-assign or you can assign roles for them. One
person should be narrator and the other two can be actors.
However, I encourage that each group work on creating/writing
the story together.

3) Each group's task is to put together a human slideshow of 5
different scenes retelling their story. While the narrator tells
what is happening in each scene, the actors are in frozen poses
in front of the audience acting out what is happening. When the
narrator says, "next slide," that's when the actors can move
again and get into their new poses. This pattern goes on until
the last slide of the story.
