PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Teach plot elements with an engaging, hands-on card sort! This word sort includes two activities that focus on the vocabulary of story elements and plot diagrams. They can be used as a pre- or post- assessment, practice or review activity.

Vocabulary/Word Sort

Students sort the cards to show understanding of each story element. You can use this sort as a pre- or post- assessment for story elements, introduce the sort as you teach and limit the number of words they sort, or use as a review activity. This works well in centers. Students can take a picture of their finished sort or fill out a blank plot diagram (provided).

Fairy Tale Matching Activity
Using the classic fairy tales of Cinderella and Snow White, students place the cards on a provided plot diagram. These diagrams are scaffolded (blank, label, and label with definition) so all students can access the activity as independently as possible and to provide you with flexibility in terms of using this in a way that fits your needs. For example, use the fully scaffolded diagram for practice and a blank one for a post assessment.

Terms included are:
Exposition
Rising action
Climax
Falling action
Resolution
Conflict
Protagonist
Antagonist
Theme
Plot
