Activity Overview


As students learn more about elements of literature, they are often asked to draw connections between these elements. Storyboards can be a great way for students to demonstrate an understanding of the way these elements interact. For this storyboard, students can explain connections between characters and plot, setting and mood, plot and the theme, characters and theme, or the setting and plot. Have students depict pairs of elements side by side and explain their connections underneath them. The sample storyboard illustrates the connection between characters and plot and setting and mood.
