This bundle includes two powerpoints, guided notes, activities, essay prompts over lesson and readings, etc.
The two activities are fantastic. One is an article that analyzes and compares the similarities between the Holocaust and what ISIS is doing... i.e. the psychology behind such brutality with a prompt at the end.
The other activity is a reading created by Ellie Wiesel a Holocaust survivor who won the Nobel Prize and was TIME Magazine's 'Man of the Year' in 2012. His reading is directed at youth and emphasizes education in order to root out prejudice and racism... he personalizes it directly at the kids and it's quite good. There's an essay prompt at the end of that one, as well.
The Victim, Perpetrator, and Rescuer(s) PowerPoint is a lot of fun. Essentially a picture is shown and the students have to guess if the person(s) is a victim, perpetrator, or rescuer during the Holocaust. After they guess, you switch to the next slide and it shows them the true person and a synopsis about them. (This is a lot of fun, one of my favorite activities I do throughout the year... the kids really get into it, but I made the ppt to be super tricky).
The actual Holocaust content PowerPoint is loaded with cool animations, pictures, quotes, and interesting facts/vital content for students. It begins with showing the gradual buildup of anti-semitism in Germany during pre-war years, the propaganda, rules, laws, etc. unfairly prohibiting the Jews. Moreover, it goes through the ghetto system and finally to the camps and how Jews and other groups were punished, killed, etc. It even portrays certain German resistors to remind the students not every German supported the Holocaust.
The PowerPoint is neatly organized and flows well. Look for the asterisks next to certain terms, people, etc... those are there for students to underline/highlight as key information.
The notes are concise allowing students to focus on the lesson. They also have built in bellworks and assignments. Please note they contain the content, but not quotes, supplemental information, etc. Basically, everything you need without dragging the kids down in detail.
