Pass out scissors and glue/tape -coloring is optional, I prefer the color due to it optimizes the viewing and recalling skills in our students. Allow your students to use the text and unit materials to complete the diagram puzzle.

Plot diagram foldable -Color each category a different color. Cut out the foldable. Fold along the dotted line. Cut along category lines to create your flap. Under each flap write your guided notes for the plot diagram. Attach it to the left side of your notebook.

Instruction/ facilitation:
Using the story map structure attach the pieces to the graphic organizer in the correct spaces at which they appear in the story.
You can implement this handout as an interactive reading notebook activity or it can stand alone.

Print in color or gray scale.
