Creative project with rubric. This project was created with the PARCC Narrative writing task in mind. For this project, students assume Anne Frank had access to paper and something to write with during her time at Bergen-Belsen. There was a phase when Anne & Margot Frank were in the same section as The Blumenthals, therefore this activity requires students to make connections between Four Perfect Pebbles and Anne Frank’s diary.
BONUS ITEM: 2 short articles and cold-read quizzes (great to use as study guides or enrichment)
Pre-Reading Activity – NOTE: I used this activity for a Compass Evaluation and received a Highly Effective rating as a result.
Though this lesson was designed to coordinate with Four Perfect Pebbles, it works as a great introduction to any unit on the Holocaust.
In this activity, students rotate to 4 stations in which they will obtain background knowledge on 5 key concepts necessary for understanding the events and people of the Holocaust. Concepts are: background on Concentration Camps (done as a whole-group), Hitler’s Rise to Power, Anne Frank, a veteran’s accounts of liberating Bergen-Belsen, and a survivor’s accounts of death trains). After absorbing the information provided, students select a higher order thinking question slip at random (each station has 4 HOT questions which allow students to respond to the information on a deeper, more meaningful way). Reflection slips are glued to a response sheet and discussed as a group though responses are individual.
