In The Giver by Lois Lowry, the community members have been completely sheltered from feeling any emotional or physical pain. While this seems positive, Jonas comes to realize that just as there is no pain without memory, there is also no true happiness. Allow your students to make a real-world connection to the novel by reading and watching a video about a girl who feels absolutely no pain. This activity is sure to engage your students in thoughtful discussion about the importance that pain plays in our lives.

 

INCLUDED IN YOUR PURCHASE 

• Teacher instructions on how to facilitate the activity. 

• A poster to welcome students to the activity 

• An article about a real girl who has a medical condition that allows her to feel no pain (video clip also included in instructions) 

• Advantages and disadvantages cards for students to consider both sides of the argument for living a life without pain.
