This creative activity requires students to identify at least five significant symbols in the novel and then illustrate these symbols -- as a collage or drawing -- on the frontside of the silhouette. On the backside, students will name the symbol and provide a concise explanation for what the item represents. This mini-project serves as an effective character analysis tool and reinforces student knowledge of symbols in literature.
Included in the document is a silhouette, a sheet of instructions that can be cut into fourths and distributed to students, and three full-color student work samples (front-side only).
(Note that the included silhouette is an updated version of the one included on the student samples.)
