Activity Overview


An exceptional way to help your students follow a story is to have them track the events from it. Not only is this a great way to teach the parts of a plot, it also reinforces major events, which helps students develop greater understanding of how the events fit together to provide the overall structure of the story.


This example identifies six main events:

  • Mr. Popper admires the penguins and explorers of the North and South Pole.
  • Admiral Drake sends Mr. Popper a surprise: a pet penguin from the South Pole.
  • Mr. Popper gets Captain Cook a companion, Greta.
  • Captain Cook and Greta have ten children, which is very costly for the Poppers.
  • The Poppers and the penguins join the theater and perform in cities across the country.
  • Mrs. Popper returns to Stillwater, while Mr. Popper joins Admiral Drake and the penguins on an exploration to the North Pole.
