While the Holocaust can be a daunting topic to teach, it is also extremely interesting to students at the middle school level.
Students choose a novel that focuses on the Holocaust or someone's journey during WWII/Holocaust and applies their book to the packet questions.
This packet includes:
1. Overall questions to apply to novel
2. Holocaust + WWII vocabulary
3. Two projects to apply to book (Story Suitcase + Quilt Project)
*You may choose to have students pick books individually or work in novel reading groups.
*In the past I have used this to start off my novel groups. We have read Daniel's Story, Parallel Journeys, After the War, Escape from Warsaw, and The Devil's Arithmetic.
