Ready for a new way to bring the people and places of Israel into your third-grade classroom?
Introducing Yisrael Sheli, a revolutionary new Israel text from Torah Aura Productions
Yisrael Sheli lets you tell your students two different stories about Israel. The first is the story of the people who created the State of Israel. The second is the story of the places in the Land of Israel. As we tour the land of Israel, we learn about the stories that created Israel
What's it like to travel Israel with the people who built her? Ben Gurion leads the tour at Sde Boker, his kibbutz. Rachel (the Poetess) reads her poems on the shores of the Kinneret.
Joshua leads us across the Jordan river, and Josephus tells the story of Masada. In the cobblestone streets of Tzfat, Isaac Luria gives a lesson on mysticism, while Ilan Ramon points our eyes to the stars from his balcony in Beersheva. This is the Israel trip you and your students have always dreamed of!
Yisrael Sheli brings Israel alive by fusing the adventure of a visit to the Jewish homeland with the adventures of those who shaped Israel, the people and the place.
The book is filled with discussion questions and activities that make it exciting and easy to teach.
And because a great book can only be the beginning of quality Israel education, the Yisrael Sheli Teacher's Guide is a compendium of top-notch programs and ideas for experiential, out-of-the-box activities.
This is a book that's meant to be the foundation for exciting Israel learning
