This collection of activities was designed for students (6th-12th grade) who reinforce their learning by “doing or creating” rather than taking the same old tests or quizzes. This unit was intended to measure students’ comprehension and analysis of The Book Thief, however in addition to that it also incorporates several “fun” writing/speaking activitiesthat are part of most State Standards. Activities are also woven throughout The Book Thief unit that ask the students to make a connection with themselves and the world around them. Most tasks are designed to play to students’ creativity and to get students out of their chairs moving and interacting with others.
