An exceptional way for your students to follow a story is for them to track the events from it. Not only is this a great way to teach the parts of a plot, but it also reinforces major events, which helps students develop better understanding of how the events fit together to provide the overall structure of the story.
When the King announces his plan to come spend some nights at Camdenton Manor, the Lord of the Manor has many things he needs to get done. Using a timeline storyboard, students can make a sequence of events that lead up to the grand feast for the King.
|STEP 1||The manor had to be cleaned and rooms readied.|
"The royal suite was redecorated. Silk was spun, new fabric was woven. The Royal Crest was embroidered and painted on the King's chair."
|STEP 2||Tents were set up for the horsemen. A fence was built to keep the horses in.|
|STEP 3||Provisions were gathered for the feast. The Lord and his party went hunting. People picked fruits and vegetables. Butter and cheese were made. Wines and ales were brewed.|
|STEP 4||All the food was prepared in the great kitchen. Meats were roasted and boiled.|
|STEP 5||Guests came to the great hall for the feast. They washed their hands with scented water. The Bishop said grace. The feast began!|
