Literary Elements Mobile
Your task is to create a mobile on which you will hand cards that describe the five literary elements in your novel.
Directions:
1. Trace the triangle shape of the inside of a hanger onto construction paper. 2. Cut out the triangle and punch a hole in each of the three corners. Thread ribbon or yarn through each hole and tie the triangle of construction paper to the inside of your hanger. 3. On one side of the triangle you will write the title and author of the story you read. On the other side you will write your name and class period. 4. Using construction paper, make cards to hang from your hanger. You must include the information from the rubric on your cards (each topic gets it’s OWN card). 5. Punch a hole in the top center of each card and use ribbon or yarn to fasten the card to your hanger. Once a card is tied to the hanger, secure it with a piece of tape so it doesn’t slide around.
