This resource includes everything you need to teach story elements and the plot pyramid to your middle grades students.
This Story Elements Plot Foldable Collection includes:
Plot Structure Pyramid Foldable Template (blank and labeled)
6-Tab Elements Foldable Templates (blank and labeled)
Alternate 5-Tab Elements Foldable Templates (blank and labeled) - no Inciting Incident
Plot Pyramid Structure Foldable with Cut-Out Tabs
Plot Pyramid Structure Graphic Organizer with Key Questions
NEW! Elements of Plot Colorful Poster Set!
Step-by-step directions for each foldable type (including pictures)
Plot Notes Chart that includes symbols, characteristics, and definitions for writing inside foldables
Elements covered include: Exposition, Inciting Incident, Rising Action, Climax, Falling Action, and Resolution.
I like to teach Inciting Incident as a separate term and placed between the Exposition and Rising Action on the pyramid. However, in case you do not wish to include it this way, all activities include a version that totally omits the Inciting Incident, which is the reason for the Alternate 5-Tab version of the Elements Foldable.

These activities are Common Core aligned for the middle grades as they direct students to analyze plot structure and elements of plot in a fiction story.
**The foldables in this product are also included in my Interactive Reading Literature Notebooks
