    • The resolution is the event that solves the problem.

    Read the following passage aloud and answer the questions about the elements of fiction.

         Long ago when dragons roamed the earth, a hunter made a paper dragon for his son.  He placed the dragon on a shelf in his home.  He told his son that the dragon would protect them.  The little boy felt calm each night as he went to sleep.  He knew the paper dragon would keep him safe.

         The dragon was sad because he sat alone one the shelf.  He wanted to go out and see the world.  The dragon could not move because he was made of paper.  

         One day, the hunter's son tied some string to the dragon and took him off the shelf.  The son took the dragon outside to fly him like a kite.  Suddenly the dragon was high in the sky!  He flew up and down and all around.

         Then the string broke.  The dragon did not fall.  He could feel his wings get stronger and stronger.  He was flying!  Now the dragon could fly around the world.  The boy was sad to see the dragon go, but he was happy to see him fly.
