GIVER ACTIVITY: MEMORY TRANSMISSION
This fun, interactive simulation of the memory transmissions in The Giver by Lois Lowry will allow students to empathize with Jonas and also play the role of The Giver!
This Resource Is Included In My Unit Plan For The Giver. Click Below!
THE GIVER UNIT PLAN - 340+ PAGES!
HOW IT WORKS:
Students will enter the classroom to a colorful poster welcoming them to the The Giver’s Annex. The teacher is transformed into Giver and gives each group of students descriptions of new memories that Jonas will receive. Some of the memories involve events of historical significance like slavery, and the Holocaust, while others involve positive memories like Neil Armstrong’s arrival on the moon! Students discuss prompting questions that will have them understand the value of keeping the world’s memories safe.
After students have all the memories transmitted, they will shift into the role of The Giver and transmit one important historical memory to Jonas (worksheet included). Students absolutely LOVE this activity ☺

TEACHER FEEDBACK ON THIS RESOURCE:
♥ Great resource for the Giver! I highly recommend purchasing the other resources for The Giver, too!
♥ My Honors 8th grade students read The Giver for summer reading. I check their reading with a quick assessment but want to do more before we move on to other utopias and dystopias. This is a great way for us to dive into the themes of the novel and get them thinking deeply and reflecting. Thank you!
♥Fun assignment to go with The Giver. Can't wait to try it with my students.
