This short editable PowerPoint (also included as .pdf) introduces kids to banned books. It includes statistics and general information from the Office of Intellectual Freedom for the American Library Assocation, as well as author quotes and examples of three popular books.
After the PowerPoint and for the next class period, students then create a poster about a banned book of their choosing. The posters are great to hang up and get kids excited to read these "forbidden" treasures! :)
