Museum of Tolerance (Los Angeles)

17 09 2010

As we work through our Literature  unit on courage, we are studying several courageous figures from the Holocaust.  As an extension activity, I would like to encourage the students, with their parents, to consider taking a visit to The Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles.  This would be a very educational and enlightening trip for your child and you.  I would give extra credit to any student who visits the museum within the months of September – October.  Please have your student bring me a ticket stub to show that they’ve visited the museum.  I will also require that they turn in a one page write-up reflecting on what they saw and their reaction to the museum.

Hooray for YOU!! Family License Plate

15 09 2010

You will need to collect items that represent you and your heritage to create this project.  Some examples might include: flags, pictures, words, Bible verses, a family motto, small (light) items, and any other creative things that you’d like to share.

Include your first and last name somewhere boldly on the plate.

These will be hanging in the classroom, so they cannot be too heavy!   HAVE FUN AND LET YOUR CREATIVITY SHINE!! 🙂
