  12. 12. WEBSITES Wordle.net • Allows you to copy and past text, then Wordle accents the words that are used the most often • Great for interesting text layouts Graffiticreator.net • Allows you to type a word and change the style of it • Great for interesting fonts
  13. 13. ENGLISH Writing prompts: • A journal entry • Personal essay about discrimination due to religion or culture • Research prompt based on historical literature • A letter to Hitler calling for an end to the conflict S.O.L strand: 12.7 The student will develop expository and informational writings. b) Consider audience and purpose when planning for writing.

Compare to genocide statistics • Statistics of blond/blue eyed Americans born per year to dark eyed/dark haired children • Income levels of the Jewish populations vs. non- Jewish population and how finances influenced the genocide. • Graphing/coordinate plane explanations for above information
  15. 15. GEOMETRY G.1. c) using Venn diagrams to represent set relationships; relationships between Jews and non-Jews both before and after WW2 relationship between 1.5 million kids killed and what that would look like today (how many kids in a particular state, school district, etc) G.9 Tessellations and tiling problems will be used to make connections to art, construction, and nature. Tessellations of the Jewish star G.12 The student will make a model of a three-dimensional figure from a two-dimensional drawing and make a two-dimensional representation of a three-dimensional object. Models and representations will include scale drawings, perspective drawings, blueprints, or computer simulations. Have the postcard be a 2-D drawing of a object (cattle cars that transported Jews), or place (blueprint of Auschwitz or a Jewish Ghetto). Part of the lesson could conclude with making 3-D forms/cities from the shapes/plans/blueprints on the postcard.
