Use this interactive presentation to explain symbolism to students. This Prezi show can be displayed to the whole class or students can work through it individually on their own. Students will understand what symbolism in literature is used for, identify different examples, and then apply their knowledge by identifying symbols in a story or novel.
This lesson can be used with any text. I have used it to identify symbolism in the novel The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. When I've done this in my classroom, I shared the link for the Prezi with my class through Google Classroom, and they worked through the presentation on their own and took notes.
