Different and Alike
When teaching Holocaust Education in the K - 4 classroom, it is important to understand the rational behind teaching history to young children. A Teacher's Guide To The Holocaust, from the University of South Florida, has excellent guidelines and many activities.
A lesson plan and activities for each of the grade levels will be given. As time progresses more will be added to this site.

Yom Hashoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, took place on May 2, 2000. This is the day that we remember the 6 million Jews who died in the Holocaust. It is a time when we can discuss with young children the values of appreciating differences, respect for others, prejudice, cooperation and caring for our fellow human beings. The following activity is suggested by Dr. Miriam Klein Kassenoff, Education Specialist/Holocaust Studies for Miami/Dade Schools and The Holocaust Memorial, Miami Beach, FL, and Lisette Kabak Weingard, teacher, at Highland Oaks Elementary.
