This kinesthetic activity will get your students out of their seats and can be used as a collaborative activity for reviewing parts of a book or story. The included words are characters, resolution, setting, story elements, plot, conflict, title, author, and illustrator.
Note-For durability, copy on cardstock.
1. Students are to be placed in groups of 2-4 and told that the words that are attached to the definitions are not the correct definitions.
2. Students are to read the definitions and find the word that describes their definition. The correct word is located on another sheet of paper around the classroom. After they record the page, they are to read the definition at the top of the paper where they are now located. They are then to locate that word.
3. The activity is over when all words and definitions are matched.
