8th Grade Social Studies
The eighth graders will continue their study of WWII and the Holocaust this week. We will focus on the rise of the Nazis and the policies that they instituted prior to the start of WWII. We will also look at some of the early events of WWII and the Nazis' use of ghettos to control large portions of the population. The students will have a field trip on March 25 to the Nancy and David Wolf Holocaust and Humanity Center at Union Terminal. The students will have a guided tour of the museum's exhibits. Afterwards, the students will hear the story of a local Holocaust survivor. It should be a very informative and meaningful trip.
