So, what we have created for you is a literary unit of study for teaching The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. We know, we’re excited about it, too! We use this lovely novella about the meaning of life to teach our students how to analyze symbolism and theme within stories. Be sure to check out our mini lessons on theme to use before you start reading this novella if your students could use a refresher on how to analyze theme in short stories. This Little Prince unit also focuses on characterization. Here is a link to our character mini-lessons if your students could use a refresher with that literary concept.

Tell Me More:

We have created an editable presentation (keynote, Powerpoint, and PDF formats) that contains the basic elements of any good lesson: an anticipatory set, direct instruction, guided practice, assessment, and a reflection. We also have pre-reading discussions and post reading discussions and activities embedded in the presentations.

What You Will Get:

3 Presentations - Keynote (editable), PowerPoint (editable), and PDF

2 Graphic Organizers

5 Student Literary Response and Analysis Activities

Student Examples

Got it:

We hope that you see that your students love this unit of study as much as ours do.

Happy teaching!
