Product Description
This is a complete set of worksheets and guiding questions that will enable students to understand allegory well. This is a concept many of my students have struggled with, but by first going through familiar Aesop Fables and then Dr. Seuss, they have been able to understand the more complex meanings behind stories.

This a 7-sheet set that can be used in several ways and several lessons or extensions. I use all of them together to introduce George Orwell's Animal Farm, but other teachers have used it in the following ways.

1.) A basic introduction to Symbolism & Allegory using "The Ant & the Grasshopper" and "The Rabbit and the Hare" - comparing 2 pieces.

2.) A more complex analysis involving a third piece, Dr. Seuss' "The Sneetches"

3.) A fuller thematic unit that introduces George Orwell's Animal Farm & discusses the meanings and symbols of the story.
