Reviewer Comments:

This is an excellent group project for students to learn about forms of resistance to the Holocaust. Students each take on different roles in small groups to learn about a particular form of resistance and then create a picket sign and journal entry. There are directions, readings, and clear guidelines for the activity. You will also find more related resources in the next lesson (Resistance Projects 2) including a chart students can fill in when other groups share their projects.
