As you know, we are still reading The Giver by Lois Lowry in Language Arts class. This book is about a perfect society where they are no choices, war, or feelings. The only exception is The Receiver, who receives memories of the past from the previous Receiver. Jonas has been selected as the new Receiver and the first memory that The Giver gives to Jonas is of snow.
The first memory is would give to the new Receiver would probably be of going down a water slide. I know that this seems like a weird memory to give, but the people in this community are already accustomed to water and swimming, but they are not accustomed to hills, weather, or even color. I think that the water slide would be a good memory because it incorporates something that is familiar but also something new, fun and exciting.
