Fourth Graders Honor the Memory of the Holocaust Victims on International Holocaust Remembrance Day
For their PBL (Project Based Learning), our two fourth grade classes invited a special guest speaker, Ilan Amir, to talk about his family's personal experience with the Holocaust.
He presented a history lesson about the countries involved during the Holocaust and the impact it had on the people during that time period.
In honor of Mr. Emir's visit, our fourth graders created murals to honor the memory of the victims of the Holocaust. Each class worked as a team and created individual square patches which was then assembled to create the murals. The murals will be gifted to Mr. Emir's Synagogue.
On January 27, 2023, International Holocaust Remembrance Day, our students made a video presentation of their murals and what they learned about the Holocaust to share with Mr. Emir and Hanalani parents. See video below.
