Students will identify the plot and subplot in a story. Tell students that many stories have a plot and one or more subplots. Explain that the plot is the major conflict, while a subplot consists of a minor conflict that connects to the main plot. Often, a subplot introduces new characters and helps readers better understand the story.

Teaching Tips
