GIVER ACTIVITY: HOUSE OF OLD
In The Giver by Lois Lowry, the elderly are placed in "The House Of Old" and are eventually released from the community. This fun, interactive class activity allows students to examine how the elderly are treated in different cultures/countries in the world and how this compares to Jonas' community.
Students will enter the classroom to a colorful poster welcoming them to The House Of Old. Then, they participate in small group discussions with information cards that provide details about how the elderly are treated in different cultures. When they are done, they fill in the blank card with how the elderly are treated in the novel and share with the rest of the class!
