This is an in-depth research project on the Holocaust. It is perfect when used alongside a novel dealing with the Holocaust such as Anne Frank or Night.
Students are to research various people, events, and places as well as write creative responses to "what if" and "how is ____ like ____" questions that deal with WWII and the Holocaust.
This project can be used with students in groups or own their own. I typically give 5 weeks on this project, with 5 days of in-class research. Students complete the rest on their own.
I've used this project in my advanced 7th grade Gifted ELA class, but this project can easily be adapted and used in grades 6-12 ELA or Social Studies.
Thanks for looking!
