7th Grade Holocaust Museum Exhibits

For the past month, Seventh Grade Students have been studying the Holocaust. They read the novel Night by Elie Wiesel, visited the Museum of Tolerance, and listened to a talk from survivor Betty Cohen, who visited our school a couple of weeks back. For their final project, the students created their own Holocaust museum exhibits honors survivors. They spent time doing historical research and worked collaboratively to create a project honoring their survivor through maps, photographs, artifacts, biographies and writing. They served as curators today as they toured their Sixth and Eighth Grade peers through their museum. It was a very powerful project experience, and one they are sure to remember for a lifetime.
