Literary Plot Elements - Graphic Organizer

Free | 1 page|Grades: 4 - 6

A graphic organizer for finding the elements of plot in a literary text.

Use this graphic organizer when determining the 5 elements of plot in a literary text.

Students must fill in the exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and the resolution.

This graphic organizer works well when used in your guided reading groups, in your reading centers, or your book clubs or novel studies. Simply slip them into a dry-erase pocket and let your kids write and wipe with a dry erase marker.

Use the drop-down menu to choose between the blank or scaffolding PDF or the interactive Google slide version.
