PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a fun and engaging activity to do with your students as you read The Giver, by Lois Lowry. This is a mock Ceremony of Twelve that gets your students up, out of their seats, and in front of the class. Because the Ceremony of Twelve takes place in the beginning of the novel, this activity allows your students to really take interest in the novel as they are given actual "roles" (assignments) in this mock community.

There is a writing portion of the activity, as well as a public speaking aspect. The packet includes instructions for you, guidelines and worksheets for the students, an assignment (or job) list, and a mock script as you perform the role of Chief Elder, residing over the ceremony.

If your students have yet to show interest in the novel (as many young non-readers do!), I promise that this activity will get them more enthusiastic. They particularly enjoy the portion of the ceremony in which you tell certain students they have been released! (i.e.: "Brian, YOU HAVE BEEN RELEASED". . . "Ohhhhh snap!" "Get outta here, Brian!" "Boo ya!" "See ya later, bro!")

Enjoy!
