Activity Overview


A great way for your students to practice determining a story’s setting is for them to make a visual storyboard depicting where each chapter takes place.

In this activity, students will choose a chapter and decide on the setting. They will create the setting using the storyboard art. In the storyboard, each setting should be visually represented, along with an explanation of the scene. Details, characters, and textual evidence can be added to reinforce the setting.

Here is an example:

Chapter 1: The Pudding Like a Night on the Sea

The setting of Chapter 1 is in the kitchen. The story begins in the kitchen with the dad making pudding. The story ends in the kitchen when the dad punishes the boys for eating the pudding by having them make a new one.
