Activity Overview


When studying a period of history, it's important for students to have a solid understanding of basic terminology that will be used in the unit. This allows them to be able to better understand the events and have the vocabulary needed to have discussions in class.

In this activity, students will use a spider map to define and illustrate major terms used in discussing the Holocaust. This will allow students to better understand the Holocaust and why it happened. Students should be sure their definitions include how each term is directly related to the Holocaust. Teachers may pre-select terms they would like students to study, or they can use from the suggested list below:

Example Holocaust Vocabulary

  • Indoctrination
  • Genocide
  • Antisemitism
  • Dehumanization
  • Bias
  • Nationalism

  • Extended Activity

    Have students expand further on one of the terms defined in their spider map. Students could expand on how the term applies to understanding the Holocaust in more depth, and its relation to a broader perspective on why the Holocaust occurred.
