This resource contains four original short stories. Students are given the task of identifying the five plot elements for each story (introduction/exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and conclusion/resolution).
This product has been prepared in both "task card" format or "worksheet" format. Also, there is an option for full-page passages or half-page passages in task card format. All three options are available with this single purchase. Further description of the three layouts is provided in the preview (and downloaded product). An answer key is included.
********This resource is available in TWO FORMATS:
- TRADITIONAL PRINTABLES- Print the PDF and distribute paper copies to your students to complete.
- TPT EASEL ACTIVITY- I created a new, colorful version for this digital format. Students can complete this activity on a device. Students read each passage and identify the exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution. Then, students complete a plot diagram for the story. Students type complete sentences in answer boxes.
