PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is the type of lesson students will remember forever. It has worked well for every teacher that has tried it.

As students enter the classroom, they will receive an index card with a picture of a bird, squirrel, rabbit, porcupine, frog, or fish. Students will be grouped by the animal they chose.

Teacher will read "Terrible Things" (an allegory about the Holocaust) and students will react as their animal. After the teacher is finished reading the story, students will read the poem "First They Came for the Jews." Students will be amazed when they make the connection.

Finally students will create a skit in which they teach the lesson in a modern way. File includes detailed lesson plan, story graphic organizer, skit planning graphic organizer, comparing and contrasting graphic organizer (poem and story), and pictures of animals.
