The Boy in the Striped Pajamas
A Novel Study

Daily Oral Language
Think of a time period in history (ex. medieval era, future, ancient Rome) that really interests you. Can you think of a movie or a book that is set during that time period? Describe it below.
Historical Fiction
Historical fiction is a type of literature that takes place in the past and uses details about historical events, people and places but uses a plot that is made-up.

So.........the story seems as though it could have happened in a past time period but the author has created the plot from their own imagination
What do we know about the time period?
Why does it matter?

The setting of "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas" is World War Two.

With the person sitting next to you, describe in your purple notebook what the "setting" of a story is.

Next, write down three things you know about World War Two and prepare to share them with the class.
