This Gallery Walk is intended help the students understand the horror of the Holocaust before reading the novel Night by Elie Wiesel.
There are twenty one photos that I separate into four categories: The Victims, Persecution, Deportation, and Genocide. I have included the word file to print these categories. After hanging up the photos around the room I add the caption under the photo to give the students a little more context.
I dim the lights before the students enter the room and start my class in the hallway. I tell them that I have converted my classroom into a museum and the assignment for the day is to reflect on the photos they see. I require a paragraph on each of the four categories, but I have also done it with the students reflecting on each picture. You'll know which works better with your class :) I like to wrap up the lesson with a class discussion on the terrible nature of the holocaust and answer any questions the kiddos might have.
Because I also take the students to visit the holocaust museum at the end of the novel I use this exercise to practice museum etiquette.
captions, categories and a 5 E lesson plan are included in the zip file.
