Mysterious Story Setting Background Posters

PDF, Google Slides | 3 pages|Grades: 2 - 5

A set of 3 mysterious story setting posters for students to use in a variety of ways.

Use these story setting posters to inspire and support storytelling and narrative writing in the classroom.

They can be used in a variety of ways, such as:

  • project a setting up on the screen and have your students practice using descriptive language in a quickwrite.
  • print each setting on cardstock and place them on a binder ring. Hang in your writing center for when your students need inspiration on what to write.
  • project a setting up on the screen and use it as an inferencing activity. Ask students what they see in the picture and what they think is happening (or about to happen) in the picture.

Settings include:

  • mysterious cave
  • mushroom village
  • floating village

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