Expand on Chapter 5 with this internet activity. if you do not have technology.
- Students need to read about the major Jewish Holidays
- This can be done as a Jigsaw with each student doing a different holiday and then sharing out
- This can be used as an introduction or review activity at any point during the book BUT Chapter 5 is all about how Elie is losing his religion and does not want to fast on Yum Kippur. This makes this activity particularly interesting.
- I like to break the chapter in half and read this after the first half of Chapter 5
This should take about 30 minutes if it is jigsawed and students share out. I project the answer key and students take notes after each group or individual shares their holiday.
