As different way to review the elements of plot and to teach theme, I have the students read a fable ("The Tortoise and the Hare" is included) and then create their own fables using the ideas we review with the unit. Included is a power point overview of terms such as theme, climax, rising action, conflict, etc. and a notes sheet that I have the students complete while I lecture, an outline for the students to use to help them build their stories, a fable example and a grading rubric.
