When writing a narrative, there are many ways to end the story. There are surprise endings and warm and fuzzy endings. Some endings let the reader and main character learn a lesson or reflect on the story. Sometimes, an author will write a vivid image at the end of a story. In this quiz, the students will identify the different types of endings.

Story 1 - Bobby

After school, Bobby quickly runs home to play his favorite video games. He knows that he has a big math test tomorrow. He thinks for a minute before he picks up the controls of his video game. Studying for the math test is more important than the video games, but he really doesn’t want to do that. Bobby reassures himself that studying at the last minute is the best thing to do. Then he will have the information fresh in his mind. Bobby picks up the controls and plays his video games for hours. By the time he looks up at the clock, it is time for bed. Bobby shrugs. He will study in the morning.
