Bring The Giver by Lois Lowry to life with these FUN and CREATIVE class activities that your students will love!



♥ Love your product. The activities really forced my students to think outside the box. I could see their minds working and many remarking " I never thought of it that way before". What every LA teacher wants. So easy to use. Thank you, Thank you

♥ I loved using these activities! Each activity strengthened my students' connections to the book while having them apply the skills we were currently practicing. Great resource!

♥ This was the best Giver unit I have seen - great activities with wonderful discussion points. I hate when a "unit" is only comprehension questions. I teach GT students and my kids understand the books they read, they need to be pushed to think more deeply about the text. These activities were perfect for that! Thank you!! 

♥ My 7th grade students are really enjoying the various activities provided in this resource, and they ESPECIALLY loved the "Ceremony of Twelve" Simulation!! Thank you!!

♥ I swear by this unit. It has been the best resource I've purchased from TPT...hands down!
