Teachers.net offers an 'after reading' 'hands on' activity for Lois Lowry's unforgettable novel. Students will take black and white photos of objects that are integral to the story, and write a magazine introduction for the photos. Here's a great easy quick, fun, way to change the regular routine and introduce an activity students will enjoy and remember. This activity is good for students who are more reluctant readers.

Listen to Lois Lowry talk about this riveting book! Random House has put together a great site that begins with a message from the author about the basic concept of this Newberry Medal winner. In The Classroom offers teachers lesson activities that range from pre-reading to interdisciplinary connections involving historical fiction reading comparisons, discussions about ambiguity in writing, the scientific nature of color, and even research into utopian societies past and present. Teachers will find the Web links off beat, but the general lessons are easy to use and will challenge students.

This lesson plan for Lois Lowry's book emphasizes the concept of 'resistance to injustice'. The summary is well presented and the lesson begins with vocabulary suggestions and a Quick write task to allow teachers to tap into the student's existing knowledge. The Research assignments direct students to learn more about resistance efforts in Nazi occupied countries, the tasks do assume a level of student skill. Teachers will be able to use this as a great introduction to WWII curriculum.

The Holocaust can be a difficult subject to teach in the elementary grades. This site, created by Carol Hurst, helps teachers present the topic without focusing on the more inappropriate areas of the subject. The discussion ideas provide important questions about the characters and the activities focus on the time and setting of the book. Teachers will find this a useful entry into a study of the world during World War II.
