This is a group activity that asks students to read a selection of 13 poems and songs that all thematically relate to The Book Thief and then choose how they would like to categorize them. Ex: tone (angry, sad, hopeful), topic (war, death, race), emotions characters faced in The Book Thief (fear, guilt, hope, hate, pain), time (past, present, future), characters (Liesel, Max, Hans.), theme (power of words, guilt, family).
They must rationalize why they chose those categories and why each poem fits in that category.
Directions and Poems are included.
Also check out "The Book Thief and Death Themed Poetry" in my store for more thematic poetry lessons!
