Superior Students Present Holocaust Research
Fifth graders from Northern Lights Elementary School in Superior presented research projects on the Holocaust Thursday.
The project was a collaborative effort between the kids and UWS students as part of the university’s service learning initiative.
The students have been studying genocide and the Holocaust since the beginning of the school year.
One of the goals of the project was for student’s to relate the Holocaust to their own lives, more specifically bullying and treating others with respect.
“It was really to be aware of the persecution that has happened in the past and how things like this are still happening today and I guess really to empower us that we will never again let this happen,” said Jay Burfield, Insight Teacher at Northern Lights Elementary School.
The fifth graders will be performing a play on December 18 at 10:30 a.m. about World War II at Northern Lights.
T-shirts are also on sale at the school to raise funds for the students to go to “The Ann Frank Story” in St. Cloud.
