Paper Clips

In the spring the 6th graders will be studying the Holcaust. Here's a good resource for that study. From a review of the DVD: "Whitwell Middle School in rural Tennessee is the setting for this documentary about an extraordinary experiment in Holocaust education. Struggling to grasp the concept of six-million Holocaust victims, the students decide to collect six-million paper clips to better understand the extent of this crime against humanity. The film details how the students met Holocaust survivors from around the world and how the experience transformed them and their community." There's also a book version entitled, " Six Million Paper Clips: The Making Of A Children's Holocaust Memorial (Paperback) by Peter W. Schroeder, Dagmar Schroeder-Hildebrand. Here's part one of a slide show from the book
