This activity is highly adaptable and can easily be completed in a single class period. It may be used as a discussion-starter at the beginning of a unit of study on the Holocaust. Paired with written reflections, it may be seen as a pre- and post-assessment of a unit. Teachers may find other ways to use the activity depending upon their rationale.
Teachers may use this activity alone, in teams, or in a professional development setting to spark an exploration of critical content and concepts when designing a Holocaust unit.
