There are many big metaphors that run throughout the novel, Esperanza Rising. I have two versions of this activity (one with lines and one without lines for students to write on). You can either use them as a whole class and work through one at a time to really discuss the deeper meaning of the text or you can jigsaw the metaphors to groups and have them explain the metaphors to the class. I used black and white images to go along with each metaphor to help my diverse learners and to allow the students to decorate them after discussing the meanings.
