8th Grade: The Metamorphosis

Comment 0

The students did a role play of the first part of Franz Kafka’s novella, The Metamorphosis

There are many things we take for granted in life until one day, we wake up and find them gone. This was what happened to the protagonist of Franz Kafka’s novella the 8th graders read for this quarter: The Metamorphosis.

Gregor Samsa, a hardworking salesman, woke up one day to find himself turned into a vermin. The 8th graders delved into the life of the Samsa family as they deal with the reality that their breadwinner turned into some insect and could no longer support them. Some of the questions the students had to think about while reading the novella were Did Gregor deserve what happened to him? Were his family’s response to their situation reasonable? and What life lessons does The Metamorphosis illustrate? among many others.


The students used Quizlet to help retain the vocabulary words in the novella.
