Why Incorporate Literary Elements?

Literary elements are fundamental for your students' understanding of stories!


When they grasp concepts like plot, setting, characters, and theme, it helps them to dive deeper into narratives. They can connect with characters, grasp underlying themes, and appreciate an author's storytelling techniques. 

Why a Scavenger Hunt?

Isn't learning is more motivating when skills are made into fun challenges!


By intentionally looking for these literary elements in stories, your students will start to easily recognize and interact with them. This exposure will nurture critical thinking and improve students’ ability to share their thoughts about what they read.

This free resource will help you guide your students towards a deeper appreciation of literature and empower them to form deep connections with the stories they are reading!

Turn your students into insightful and engaged readers!
