Three different direction versions are included to help you best use this resource for your students.

Version 1: The students will read each text and match the puzzle piece that matches the story element being described.

Version 2: The students will read the texts, write the story elements being described, and then find the puzzle pieces that match.

Version 3: This version is identical to Version 2, except optional distractor puzzle pieces are included.

Directions for the different versions and recording sheets can be found following the puzzle pieces.

About the Digital Story Elements Puzzles

For the digital version, the students will read three texts per slide. They will identify the story element being described by each text and drag and drop it to the correct spot.

To make this story elements activity work in a digital format, the template has been modified and reimaged for optimal digital use.

This digital reading activity has been created for use with Google Slides. Please see the preview to see the digital story elements puzzles.
