Create your Title Slide
The first chapter of The Giver introduces the main characters of the story.
Introduce yourself and the people in your family.
Tell the occupations of your parents.
The second chapter talks about Newchildren and the naming.
Tell your complete name.
Tell if you are named after someone or if you are not. If you are named after someone
tell who it is.
Jonas is nervous about the Ceremony of Twelve.
Tell which age you were or are excited about and the reason for it.
In Chapter Three Lily is referring to “comfort objects”.
Tell about something especially important to you that you own and why it is so important to you.
Jonas talks about volunteering at the Nurturing Center.
Tell how you volunteer your time helping others or someone in particular.

Chapter Seven talks about assignment of jobs for the future.
Tell what job you would like to have for your future.
Chapter Eight talks about Jonas’s special assignment. He was given this assignment because of special character traits he possesses. Choose three character traits you feel you possess and a little of why each one was chosen. (See pages 62 & 63 of The Giver)
Chapter Eleven is when The Giver chooses a first memory to transmit to Jonas.
He wants it to be an especially happy memory.
Tell about an especially happy memory of your childhood.
A big provoking thought for us in this book is that the people in the community do not know color.
This slide should be your creation having to do with color and why it was designed.
As we know, just as in The Giver, everything in our life has not been pleasant.
Tell about an especially unpleasant experience you’ve had. (One you are comfortable sharing)
Chapter Sixteen is when the experience of Christmas is transmitted as a happy family time.
Tell your favorite holiday and a little about your family traditions.
Jonas chooses to go on a trip with Gabriel.
Tell about a trip you’ve taken that you will always remember.
When all slides are complete the music will be inserted.
Read the Trilogy.
