Holocaust Writing
The seventh graders have just wrapped up their World War II unit and we spent some time reviewing the Holocaust.  In our final activity we read the poem "To the Little Polish Boy Standing with His Arms Up" by Peter L. Fischl and then the students wrote their own letter or poem to the little Polish boy.  The goal was to help the students think about compassion for others and, hopefully, make history a little more personal by drawing them deeper into a famous photograph from that time period.
