Lord of the Flies Themes Textual Analysis Activity

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.
