This is one of my favorite lessons that I do. It is easily adaptable to multiple subjects, and is part of my mini-unit that I do for the Holocaust in my U.S. History class. In essence, it is a fun and interactive way to get every student involved in learning the basic and important parts of the Holocaust. Way more fun than a simple PowerPoint lesson!
"Students will learn a timeline of important events that took place during the Holocaust by participating in an interactive timeline. Each student will receive one or more parts of the timeline. When their number is called, they will stand up and present what is on their paper. Students will then write it down in the corresponding section of their worksheet."
