Product Description
Need a resource for Holocaust Remembrance Month? This English language arts resource is a unit for the novel, Four Perfect Pebbles based on Marion Blumenthal Lazan's real-life experience as a little girl growing up during the Holocaust. This novel study includes:
- vocabulary
- an eight-page nonfiction reading packet that details how Adolf Hitler came to power
- chapter comprehension questions (literal comprehension as well as inferential - cause and effect, drawing conclusions, etc.)
- journal entries
- figurative language
- activities that provide students with background information on Zyklon-D and Westerbork
- a jigsaw activity on concentration camps
- chapter assessments which include multiple choice questions, as well as short answer and extended response questions
- a webquest to use before reading the novel with answer sheet
- a culminating activity - a Facebook profile page project

This Holocaust novel unit was used with grade 8 small group and inclusion students. Students thoroughly enjoyed reading the book and could not believe what the world let happen. I truly recommend this book to awaken your student's minds.

Unit comes in color as well as blackline masters. An answer key is also provided.
