Use this handy chart as an alternative to the old visual of a plot diagram!
This version of the Plot Chart allows for more realistic amounts of information to go into each category. It may not look like a mountain, but it'll do the trick!
I've used this with 5th, 6th, and 7th graders to track the plots of: Bridge to Terabithia, Black Stallion, A Wrinkle in Time, and Out of the Dust.
Just a simple way for them to keep their story notes organized as we go through the novels. I have them hole punch it and keep it in their binders as we read.
Side note: I've also had kids ask me for extra copies so they can use them to write their own stories! So awesome! :)
