Product Description
This activity is meant for groups studying Life of Pi by Yann Martel. Directions are reproduced below. It encourages students to use textual evidence to explore thematic developments in the novel.

For the theme that your group has been assigned, you must:
★ Come up with an alternative title/”theme statement” for your theme—this should be a sentence that describes the main idea that the novel develops about your theme. e.g.
If I were thinking about The Lion King, and the theme I was given was “guilt,” I might change it to “In order to move on and live your life, you must set aside guilt for past actions.”
★ list and describe two-three important events/situations from the novel that illustrate
your theme.
★ List the characters from the novel (human or animal) who represent this theme.
o What do they do or not do that connects with your theme?
o What do they think or feel that relates to the idea?
★ Make sure you explain your reasoning at every step!
