Lord of the Flies Themes Textual Analysis Activity → Editable files! Revised August 2019.
This is an engaging literary analysis activity for use after your students have read Lord of the Flies. You will need the following materials: eight large envelopes, markers, poster paper, and sticky notes.
Working in small groups, students will receive a folder with approximately five to eight quotations from the novel. They will read each of the quotations and then attempt to decide upon a theme that can relate to all of the quotations. After checking with the teacher, students then begin to create a wall poster. On their poster, they will include the most powerful quotation to represent their theme as well as a detailed analysis of the author’s use of language.
Following completion of the wall posters, students will participate in a carousel discussion in which they review other groups’ posters and ideas. This is a hands-on activity that my students thoroughly enjoy! It is also a great form of test prep if you are preparing students for EOC’s and Common Core final exams.
