Product Description
This lesson begins with each group of students receiving a jigsaw puzzle of a story. Once students assemble the 6-piece puzzle, they are to create an outline of a short story based on the information given - setting, protagonist, type of conflict, theme, narration style, and mood.

After story outlines are shared, the teacher redistributes one of the pieces and asks students how their stories have now changed. For example, the teacher may choose to swap the setting with two groups and the theme for another two, etc.

A class discussion then takes place on how one part of the puzzle affects the others.

Extension Activity - students are given a blank puzzle and write in the pieces for a short story or novel read individually, small group, or whole class. The teacher then asks what would happen to the plot if one of the pieces changes.
