Young students of literature often struggle to describe the mood of a story or poem beyond using simple words like "happy" or "sad," and frequently confuse themes with emotions. This activity helps students employ a broad range of words to describe the mood of a piece. Students also clearly distinguish between moods and themes. They practice these skills by viewing beautiful works of art, describing their mood, and identifying the themes expressed by the artist (to view artworks, see free resource "Themes vs. Mood" in Literary Analysis Bundle)
