A setting map worksheet keeps track of new settings as a story progresses. Setting maps are especially useful for literature with many settings.
The setting of a story can have a big impact on character actions, plot, and expectations. A story that takes place in fifth century China would mean a completely different atmosphere from a modern day story. When settings change, even if just a little, characters may behave differently or the conflict may develop. Use setting map worksheets when reading literature in an unfamiliar setting or literature with multiple settings. Understanding setting is often vital for historical fiction, science fiction, and biographies.
