This is a two part project based on the novel The Tiger Rising. Throughout the story the main character Rob carried around a “suitcase” everywhere he went. Although not an actual suitcase, Rob carried around “the not thoughts”, bottled up emotions, and memories from his past.
For the first part of the project, requires the student to identify other characters in the book that carried around their own personal “suitcase”, create an actual suitcase. The second part of the project is the written part, which requires the student to respond to two in depth questions about symbolism and theme based on the story.
