Israeli Independence Activity Guide
The activities on Israel's Declaration of Independence include the creation of a draft declaration guided by a series of six questions; a research project on a number of the people identified in the famous photo of David Ben-Gurion reading the Declaration of Independence; the creation of a "Talmud" tractate using the text of the Declaration; the application of labels to analyze portions of the Declaration; and a then-and-now chart assessing the position of the Jewish people in 1897, 1948 and today. All of the activities are designed to encourage open-ended classroom discussions.
