One of the basic elements of a work of fiction is the plot. The Plot lesson, for grades 4–8, will help your students analyze the five parts of a plot: exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution. This lesson includes a definition, an explanation of how the skill is used, an example, and practice questions with excerpts from real books. The Plot lesson can kick off a reading lesson or serve as an impromptu refresher of skills already introduced. The lesson also includes a separate Answer Key PDF.
