Holocaust Memorial Field Trip
On June 1st 2016, the 6th grade had an amazing opportunity to visit the Holocaust Memorial in Miami Beach. After several weeks of studying the horrific events that led up to the Holocaust and the survivors accounts, we as a class decided that we wanted to visit the memorial and pay tribute to the families. At the Memorial we watched a video of several survivors describing there experiences in the ghettos and concentration camps. When the video was completed we were able to take a tour of the memorial and see the awesome sculptures and names of those who lost their lives during that period in the world's history. The students stated that visiting made everything they were taught real. As we concluded our study of the Holocaust and other acts of genocide around the world the students made a promise not turn to a blind eye to injustice,discrimination and hatred.

They made Oobleck, blew a balloon up and made bubbles with regular household items; they also experimented with dry ice. The labs were a very engaging learning experience for all.
After the labs, we were able to explore the different exhibits. The students learned so many interesting facts about storms, reptiles, the body, and more! The students really enjoyed watching the otters play and becoming pilots on the dizzying space. They experienced the simulated airboat ride through the Everglades.
