PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This PowerPoint presentation defines symbolism, gives examples of popular symbols of today, and then an explanation of symbolism found in Lois Lowry's Number the Stars. Symbols examined include those of settings, Judaism, rationing, protection, and Nazi Germany. Also included are photographs of Adolph Hitler, and a slide showing students what Danish currency looks like. We sometimes use this PowerPoint as a pre-reading activity to help students visualize important concepts, but most times as a post-reading activity to summarize what's been read, and to discuss the symbolism of story events, places and things found in the story. Another suggestion would be to view specific slides of the presentation during reading, stopping to use the slides to spark discussion or explain symbolic events.

Slides Included:
-Symbol Definition
-Examples of every day symbols
-Examples of symbolism in Number the Stars
-Danish Money
-Religious symbols
-Adolph Hitler photographs

Be sure to preview the "Notes" on the slides to assist with explanations.

PLEASE NOTE: Several of the photographs included in this product are also included in our PowerPoint labeled "Introduction of Setting."
