Holocaust Memorial Museum

posted May 25, 2011, 10:11 AM by Mary O'Leary
Our library is again hosting the 8th grade Holocaust Memorial Museum.  The students have  created some very moving memorials to honor  the victims of the Holocaust.  We invite you to come to the library and browse through the displays and visit the incredible works of art, poetry, mock-ups, models, and video that the 8th grade students have created.  Our students have learned so much about this time in history through their history and LA/LIT classes.  They have researched this topic accessing many online resources and books from the library to further their understanding of this complex tragedy.  Several of the books used in the classroom were featured in the Rebecca  Caudill Young Readers' Book Award program.  Check out the links and learn more about the historical fiiction books that our students have read.

Thank you to the our 8th grade teachers especially Kate Bieschke and Heather Olson for organizing the museum project and integrating historical literature into their lessons.  This unit is engaging and very meaningful and supports not only our curriculum,  it also supports our efforts in social and emotional learning.  Never Forget.
