Do you want to bring a historic period or event to life? Let Hollywood help. Avalon is rated PG and is a great film that follows the story of immigrant Sam Krichinsky from his arrival in America (1914) to the post World War II era. Students will enjoy seeing the style of dress, the cars, trollies, the excitement of the first televisions, and the migration of people out of the cities and into the suburbs. As your students get to know the characters, you will have many opportunities to make many connections or refer back to their stories.
This lesson includes a movie review, answer key, and 27 questions that guide your students through the action. You will have to purchase the movie.
If you purchase this activity, I can also send you an editable link so you can edit and revise this activity to meet your specific needs. You can also contact me for support or collaboration.
