Elementary teacher looking for spring and read alouds to teach kindness in the classroom and tolerance? These holocaust picture books for kids are perfect picture books for older kids and picture books for teaching a plethora of reading skills.
Great activity for World War II that forces students to think critically! Students are given five scenarios that involve World War II, the Holocaust, and its aftermath. Then they are asked to answer a series of thought provoking moral questions. Each story is based on a true event and the real stories are also provided. Extension suggestions and a lesson plan are included.
