Activity Overview


Summarizing a story in three parts is a great way to introduce plot structure and parts of a story to students in younger grades. In this activity, students will create a narrative storyboard that summarizes the story in three parts: the beginning, the middle, and the end. Their storyboard should include three cells. The beginning, which introduces the story and the problem; the middle, which showcases main events and the climax; and the end, which illustrates how the problem is resolved and the conclusion of the story.

To scaffold or tailor this activity, teachers may choose to add images or descriptions and have students fill in the blanks. Be sure to update the student instructions as necessary!
