Students were each given one poem written by a child in the Terezin Concentration Camp to read and reflect on during the day. They then created a butterfly to represent their child author and hung the butterfly from the ceiling in the classroom to admire for a few days. On the third day, students came up, stood by their butterfly, read their child author's poem out loud and found out the fate of their child. Hearing the words of these children were so powerful. I don't think students will be forgetting this project or their child author anytime soon.
