Literary Element Task Cards - Upper Elementary

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 7 pages | Grades: 3 - 5

A set of 14 task cards for upper elementary students to use after reading a fiction text.

Use these classroom task cards to help students recognize and analyze literary elements found in a literary text.

The set contains 14 cards, in seven color-coded categories, exploring:

  • setting
  • character
  • plot
  • language devices
  • illustrations
  • text structure
  • vocabulary.

You may like to print the cards on cardstock and store them on a binder ring for your students to choose from. These activities can be completed in a reading center after a read aloud or listening to a book on tape, or as a whole class activity.
