  1. All of you need to read through the text and identify the correct theme. Remember a theme is an idea or a topic which is shown in a story. Such as the theme in Romeo and Juliet is love and tragedy and in Dream giver the theme is fantasy and tension.

    Look out for how the character is feeling towards an incident that has happened.
