Activity Overview


Students can identify the setting of the story and validate their understanding of setting using textual evidence.

For example:

Setting #1: Opal’s trailer park home.

Textual Evidence: “This was an all adult trailer park and the only reason why I got to live in it was because the preacher was a preacher and I was a good, quiet kid.”

Setting #2: Church

Textual Evidence: “The Open Arms Baptist Church of Naomi isn’t a regular-looking church…people bring in their own foldup chairs and lawn chairs…”

Setting #3: Pet Store

Textual Evidence: “Winn-Dixie was not allowed to come inside the store (there was a big sign on the door that said NO DOGS ALLOWED…”


Extended Activity: For an extra challenge, students can describe the importance of each setting on the story and how it does or doesn't affect the plot.
