Kristine over at Young Teacher Love featured several anchor chart ideas for narrative writing that we love! Her example using a watermelon versus a seed is perfect for helping your students understand the difference between a broad topic that could cover several events and a more specific topic focusing on one specific thought or event.

Here is her first anchor chart, showing the difference between a watermelon idea and a seed idea:
