I know she's working on a coloring book about Taro. And a research project about immigrants to Hawaii through the ages.
But I didn't know anything about the giant 10 page report (due tomorrow) on the Holocaust...
I found Sydney crying in front of the computer, paper and pencil in hand. She was looking for 10 facts about Israel (assignment item #1). Did you know that of 7 million people in Israel 5.7 are Jewish? or that Israel has the highest book printed/person rate in the world?
It took us 6 hours of hard work, more tears, and a little blister on her right hand middle finger to finish her report which includes a Venn diagram (item #9), a watercolor painting of a cellar (item #2), and an acrostic poem (item #3):
W ishing for
freedom, dad home.
A fraid of
Don't let it happen again
We, er, I mean, She better get an A. or an MP or ME or whatever that new-fangled grading system is...
For the record, it was a really interesting assignment with some great learning opportunities and no silly stuff like word searches or color by number. Sydney really knew her information and was full of details from the book and articles they had read in class. I just wish we had started the project a week ago...
I'm looking forward to reading a few of the Holocaust books that Sydney listed (item #5) in her report.
