SIXTH GRADE MEI'ARBA KANFOS HA'ARETZ IMMIGRATION FAIR
A significant part of the Sixth Grade English curriculum focuses on immigration. The teachers, led by Mrs. Judy Zapinsky, want the students to appreciate that immigration is a journey taken by our ancestors. The Mei’arba Kanfos Ha’aretz Immigration Fair was a display of the varied countries and cultures that make up the Jewish nation. The girls interviewed an immigrant to the United States and wrote an essay about the immigration process. Each group of girls created a trifold poster displaying what they learned. Walking into the gym last Tuesday night, visitors learned about various foods, clothing, Rabbonim, minhagim, maps, facts, and games for six different cultural centers. These included Eastern and Western Europe, Eastern and Western Asia, Africa, and Latin America. The girls learned about each culture and the parents were amazed at the fantastic display of culture and knowledge.
