This 43-slide PowerPoint is perfect for introducing your students to the concept of PLOT. Plot is presented in a step-by-step manner. It includes practice slides where students identify the plot elements of EXPANDED VERSIONS of well-known nursery rhymes "Jack and Jill" and "Little Miss Muffet".

Elements of plot include: exposition (introduction), rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution (conclusion). Definitions for each are included in the PowerPoint.

It also includes a bonus matching 4-page PowerPoint companion handout. Students can write on the handout, recording answers, as you progress through the PowerPoint. The companion handout is available in both printable format or digital format. The digital version is compatible with Google Slides.

Also, you DO have my permission to convert this PowerPoint to a Google Slides format to share with your students.
