SS7H2b. This lesson explains the reasons for the current conflict between Israelis and Palestinians in Israel. It explores the Zionist movement, the Holocaust, and both sides claims to the land. It includes a PowerPoint, an activator using a rap song by the artist "Matisyahu", a graphic organizer, and a summarizing writing prompt. Every year, students beg me to listen to Matisyahu again! They really get into this lesson. Enjoy!
