The Making of an Adventure: Teaching Story Elements with Whole Group Story Creation

The Making of an Adventure is a short, humorous narrative about an uncommon road trip. Random story elements are missing from the story and must be added by students to complete the plot. Cooperative groups choose the needed elements to make the story complete. This lesson offers a unique twist to nonsensical ad-lib stories because choices are provided so that students can affect the plot instead of simply editing character names or adjectives. The Making of an Adventure enables the whole class to participate in the building of the same story. In addition, students express themselves creatively through art.

Elements included:
