Hip Hop song covers the five main elements of a story: setting, plot, characters, conflict and theme. Also includes lesson plan at bottom of page. Wish I had this when I covered elements of plot at the beginning of the 9 weeks!
The students read the passage independently, then travel around the classroom answering the questions on butcher paper. There can be stations with each station asking a question about a story element (i. one on characters, one on setting etc).
