Literary Elements -  9th Grade


A visual review of literary elements using a short video created in Animoto.

The students would have already received and worked with the definitions of various literary elements (characters, conflict, point of view, setting, tone, etc.) This would be shown as a follow-up activity to initiate discussion as to what elements are represented and how the photos represent the element(s). Some photos can represent more than one thought and could be interpreted on higher levels depending on how much previoous knowledge the students may have.

These photos were chosen to represent elements.

The activity could be altered to represent the elements found in a particular book or story or even a particular genre.
