PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this activity, students learn about the death toll of Jews in Denmark and Germany in comparison to the populations of their own schools and towns. Students create a bar graph to show many successful Denmark was in protecting its Jewish population during the Holocaust. This activity was created as an introductory project for the Holocaust novel Number the Stars, where students read about a Danish family that protects its Jewish friends.

Teacher: to go above and beyond with this project, buy a 10-pound bag of rice to create a visual representation of how many died in the Holocaust. I did this with a 6th grade class for an observed lesson where I scored "Highly Effective" on the Danielson Framework. Split up the 10-pound bag of rice into smaller bags, each representing a country's population of Jews who died in the Holocaust. I did Germany and Denmark because of the novel we were reading, but you could do any country. Each grain of rice represents one person.
