Activity Overview

The setting in literature is the location and time, or the where and when of the story, and often plays a crucial role in the story. This is the case in Anne of Green Gables, which is set in the 1800s in Canada. It focuses in on Green Gables in Avonlea, which is on Prince Edward Island. The text is filled with descriptions of Green Gables and the surrounding areas as Anne marvels at the natural world around her. In this activity, students will name, describe, and illustrate the different settings in the story. They should discuss the importance of each setting as well, if necessary.
