This is a set of thirty task cards for practicing the story elements of plot and conflict. Students learn plot and conflict terms and practice outlining the plot of a story in several ways.

You can see more sample cards in the preview.

These are the plot vocabulary terms included:

plot

exposition

initiating event

rising action

climax

falling action

resolution

conflict

sequence

flashback

foreshadowing

These are the types of conflict addressed:

internal conflict

man v self

external conflict

man v man

man v nature

man v society

man v technology

man v the supernatural

The three graphic organizers presented for outlining the plot structure of a story are plot maps, storyboards, and "somebody-wanted-but-then-so" organizers.

The cards are a large, half-page size with content and illustrations designed for middle school and upper elementary kids. With a variety of activities, these cards can be used for differentiating with students of different abilities and students who work at different rates. The cards work well for individual or group work, and for review activities, class games like Scoot or Footloose, or quick assessments.

Delving into one story element such as setting is a great way to help students develop their reading comprehension, and the graphic organizer cards would also work well as prewriting activities for students' own stories. The cards support the Reading Anchor Standards and the Reading: Literature Standards.
