Students often struggle with symbolism in literature, yet they have no problem understanding it in their own lives. Right now, Silly Bandz (or Goofy/Buddy Bands) are hot with kids, teens, and even adults. Why not harness that enthusiasm and utilize it for learning?
This lesson has four different activities using shaped bracelets to help teach symbolism in literature. Appropriate for upper elementary/middle-school through high school (yes, my high-schoolers are totally into them!).
Includes three different handouts, detailed instructions, and extended activities for learning.
This lesson is included in my Literature bundle with 100+ pages of handouts to use with any piece of literature.
