STORY ELEMENTS What are the Elements of a Story? Story elements are plot, setting, and characters. A plot is the plan of the story. It tells what the story is about. It is sometimes called the main idea of the story. A plot has a beginning, middle, and end. The setting is the place where the story happens. It could be a small room or a huge country or any place in between. The characters are the people and animals in the story. In a play, the characters are the actors. Sometimes the author is the narrator who seems to be a person in the story. Try this! Read the story and answer the questions. My friend, Kira, lives in Alexandria, Virginia. She has three cats named Lisa, Bart, and Jose. When she is not home the cats run and play all day. One time, Lisa shut a door so that Bart and Jose were stuck in the basement. They were lucky because they had food and a litter box. Lisa was not lucky because she could not get to the food or the litter box!
