This activity helps students understand the symbolism and mood of the storms in Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry. To introduce the concept I show the students four storm clips from movies. The worksheet directs students to identify the mood of the scene and then to identify what the storm is symbolizing. The links to the movie clips are included. Then students find passages in the book and decide on the symbolism of the storm. If you like this, see my other Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry activities.
