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.

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.
