This year, Edgerton's eighth-grade students have examined the Holocaust and World War II through the study of literature, history, math and science. Students were able to synthesize their knowledge in a culminating gallery, where they presented artifacts of their learning. These included tri-folds, essays, commemorative stamps, poetry and illustrated writing.
Students have also participated in a field trip to the Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center in Skokie, Illinois. The cost of this field trip was offset by a generous contribution from Edgerton Gifts for Kids. We are incredibly grateful for this support!
