PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Many great literary and poetic works contain enriching symbolism, but these symbols are useless unless students know how to actively search and find connections between the concrete world and abstract ideas. This game gives students the chance to practice and strengthen that skill.

In this game, the class is divided into groups of 3 or 4 students each, and each group is given a random “Concrete Object Card,” along with an “Abstract Idea Card.” Groups must then find and explain connections between these seemingly random items and ideas. The first round is difficult for many students, but they catch on quickly as they learn to find meaning in the ordinary.

This product includes the following:
1 Cover Page
1 Teaching Instructions Page
1 Sample/Example Page
3 “Concrete Object Card” Pages (24 Cards)
3 “Abstract Idea Card” Pages (24 Cards)
1 Credits Page

Enjoy!
