This is a free exercise Charlene Tess used with her creative writing students to practice arranging the sequence of events in a plot.
Following the plot of the familiar fairy tale, Cinderella, is an excellent way to arrange plot points in the proper order. Students will learn to recognize the introduction, rising action, climax, falling action, and denouement of this familiar story, and will then be able to do the same with other literary works they read and with the stories they may write.
The exercise contains 3X5 cards that the students can cut out and arrange into the correct order, or they can use blank cards they have purchased.
After completing this exercise, students can use a stack of 3X5 cards to write out the plot points of any story they read and identify the major parts of the story.
I hope your students enjoy this activity.
