Activity Overview


The setting in a story includes where and when the story takes place, and there are usually several settings in a novel. Students should be able to understand when a story takes place and where it takes place, as well as discuss how those are important to the novel. For this activity, students will create a storyboard that highlights the where and when of Lily's Crossing. In historical fiction novels, when the story takes place is extremely important, as it is centered around an important time in the past. This novel takes place during a time of war, which impacts the characters in a variety of different ways.
