Floriography, or flower symbolism, will certainly get your students thinking creatively and critically. This is a great culminating activity. And wow, it’ll make a beautiful wall display!

Character analysis is so important to understanding literature. Are you tired of the same old routine, and the same old graphic organizers? Why not have your students analyze characters from a novel, short story, poem, or movie by using floriography?

What you get:

  • Background information about floriography—flower symbolism.
  • Teaching tips including how to “hook” your students, and how to scaffold the lesson plan.
  • Tips, suggestions, and extension, including some ideas of how to tie-in S.T.E.A.M.
  • Examples from Hamlet.
  • Three flower/plant charts with color photos
  • A blank flower vase template for students to write about characterization
  • A completed full-color sample with hand-drawn flowers and explanations.
  • *Note: I did not supply a rubric for this creative activity. This is in accordance with my educational philosophy as listed in my profile. Sometimes it's good to just let the students create and learn just for education's sake.
