Product Description
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.
