NOTE: IF YOUR SYNAGOGUE DOES NOT HAVE A SUKKAH AVAILABLE TO YOU:


First view the creation of the sukkah so students are able to see the material that is used to put it together. Then pause the video at 2:32, where there is an image of the finished product and allow students to decide whether the sukkah meets the criteria of the checklist. While they may not be able to determine definitively whether or not all of the criteria are met, they are able to:
  • Count the number of walls.
  • View the materials from which the roof and walls are made.
  • Estimate the height of the sukkah based on the height of the individuals in the sukkah.
  • See the space surrounding the sukkah.
  • View the shaded areas relative to the sunny areas
  • View the spaces within the roof that allow the rain to come in
  • Do the activity to understand the height requirements of the sukkah: Do An Experiment
