Shaun Tan’s The Lost Thing is an excellent book for the secondary or upper-primary classroom, exploring ideas of alienation, belonging and individuality. This set of resources is a valuable aid in deconstructing the text, especially for a high-school audience.
This set of resources includes:
- A general worksheet (4 pages) with a range of comprehension and analysis questions on ideas, symbols and visual representation in the book. One of these pages is a close study of The Lost Thing’s new home (the sideways page in the book)
- A worksheet on themes in the book (2 pages)
- A presentation on how Tan has appropriated a famous Australian painting for one of his images, with questions and activities to compare the two images
Both worksheets are included in Word and pdf formats to ensure compatibility.
