"Five Things" This song covers the five main elements of a story: setting, plot, characters, conflict and theme. Whether you’re studying a short story, a novel, an epic poem, a play or a film, if you don’t find these five elements, you’re not looking hard enough. With a catchy chorus that’s hard to forget, this “five elements of a short story” rap will get you or your students hooked. Setting , that's like where it's going down, Could be the train compartment, a castle or a town, Could be the Arctic winter - like To Build a Fire, The temperature's dropping, excitement is getting higher, Setting sets the scene so the scene seems set, Could be the Italian restaurant where we met, Setting gives us the where and the when, Could be modern day, the future, or way back when.
