Activities help students understand characters, setting, plot, conflict, resolution, climax, rising & falling actions.
30 sentence cards to match to 5 different story element cards and an answer key
8 definitions to match to 8 different story element cards and an answer key
- Rising Action
- Falling Action
Cut and print out all the cards and answer keys.
Students can play in small groups or individually, as a student directed activity.
How to Play:
Have students make a pile of all the sentence cards and spread
out the 5 story element cards (face up). Students read a sentence card and and then place it on the correct story element card.
Have students lay out all the 8 story element cards on a table (This is a different set than the 5 story element cards used in Activity 1.) As the student reads a definition card he/she matches it to one of the 8 story element cards.
All responses for both activities can be checked using the provided answer keys.
A great supplement when teaching ELA Common Core State Standards (Reading: Literature).
