Holocaust Memorial Lesson Plan Samples
Note to Educators
The lesson plans listed below have been written by teachers; they are designed to be used in the classroom before or after a visit to the Holocaust Memorial. They can also be used independent of a site visit. Each lesson plan corresponds to a historical panel in the Holocaust Memorial’s “Arbor of History.”
Appropriate Florida State Standards are listed with each lesson plan.
Support for Reading/Strategic Imperatives:
In addition, the lesson plans support “Areas of Focus” Number 1 – Strengthen Foundation Skills, of the Florida’s Next Generation PreK-20 Education Strategic Plan. Two of its objectives are “to increase rigor of standards to improve student achievement in VPK–12” and “to utilize assessment to direct instruction effect and student outcome.”
