Novel Study - Important Events Worksheet

PDF | 1 page|Grades: 4 - 6

A worksheet for students to explore how decision making in a story changes the course of the plot.

Use this worksheet when exploring the events which help propel the story in a class novel.

Students will have the opportunity to examine an important event and the decisions made by the characters.

They will then be encouraged to think about how the event may have been handled differently, and what effect this would have had on the storyline.

Use this teaching resource in conjunction with our other novel study resources.
