Number the Stars!This is definitely one of my favorite stories! It's set during World War II and is so skillfully written by Lois Lowry that the characters come alive. It's based on a story that was told to Mrs. Lowry by a woman who lived through the German occupation during the War.
Because most students have no background knowledge about WWII, I included an article, with questions, that gives them a better understanding of the events and circumstances happening during those years. Also included is a map of Denmark and Europe, with map activities that can be integrated with social studies classes. This 71 page packet has detailed instructions of how to use the pages.
