Product Description
Pyramus and Thisbe is such a fun story to read with middle and high school students! It fits in well with mythology units, Shakespeare's plays (A Midsummer Night's Dream and Romeo & Juliet), and Valentine's Day! It's a story of forbidden love that is packed with symbolism and opportunities for connections to texts that are relevant to teens' lives.

This file contains three different worksheets. The first is a two-page reading guide for the poem (poem is included). The second is a graphic organizer that helps students understand the symbolism of the wall and other elements of the story. It also allows opportunities for connections to other stories of forbidden love. Finally, a third activity contains a choice writing prompt with three options. Students respond to one of these options, making connections to either their personal lives, other texts, or a video clip.

This activity is intended to be fun, rigorous, and interactive (lots of opportunities for discussion). I hope your students enjoy as mine have.

I have included links to two different versions of the text for differentiation purposes.

Questions? I'd be happy to help. Just drop me a note through Q & A.
