Welcome to the Zionism unit of IsraelLINK.
IsraelLINK is a pioneering, interactive, learner-centered Israel educational platform designed for both Jewish day schools and supplementary school programs.
This program is designed for student interface but to use this free version, project onto a smart board or screen and use the student prompts that are part of activities as discussion points. You may also print out worksheets using the printer icon at the right of your screen if you prefer your students working pen to paper.
The blue bar entitled Teacher Reference Unit Overview will provide you with everything you need to prepare for the lessons. You will see goals, common core standards, durations of activities and resources that you will want to print out. You will note that some of the lessons that are listed in the overview are not on your free-access page. That is because these activities require your students to log in.
Each of the 3 available lessons is represented by a red bar. When you click on a lesson bar, you will see a large rectangle at the top with 3 tabs: Objectives, Preparation, and Resources. This is for the teacher only. When projecting this page if you wish to hide this as well as the other teacher prompts, click on the double arrow icon to the right of the page. Make sure you read all instructions first.
Below you will see multiple tabs. Each tab represents an activity within the lesson. When you click on the tab it turns red and the content will open below.
A black box with white print indicates the teacher’s prompts and instructions for the activity. If you wish to hide this as well as the other teacher prompts, click on the double arrow icon to the right of the page. Make sure you read all instructions first. In the student version of this platform, teacher resources and references are not seen.
