Are you teaching theme in literature? Try this fun and interesting lesson that will solidify the concept of theme for your students.
This lesson will give your students the opportunity to practice finding theme by studying famous pieces of art. This lesson can be found in my complete Finding Theme in Literature Unit.
Students will examine famous pieces of artwork and determine the theme or life lesson the artist was attempting to convey. Then, students will read background information about the piece of art and the artist. Students will reevaluate their original theme and modify if necessary.
Students will study The Scream by Edward Munch, A Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh, The Statue of Liberty by Fredric Bartholdi, and The Girl with the Pearl Earring by Johannes Vermeer.
Directions, background informational text, and scaffolding worksheet included.
