Geneseo Middle School students in Mr. Hamilton's 7th grade art classes took time to share written reflections with their classmates about their cardboard sculpture projects.

The Mobile Museum of Tolerance is offering 8th grade students in Language Arts classes with Mrs. Francque & Mrs. Plant a unique experience as they finish reading the diary of Anne Frank. GMS students have learned about her story and the persecution of Jewish people throughout Europe by Nazi Germany during World War Two. They saw a photo tour of the home where she lived in hiding and reviewed her life story in a video format during this culminating activity. Our students used the knowledge they've gained to discuss how her diary, primary source of history, will compare and contrast with important historical events in their lives. The theme of tolerance for people who have different cultural, religious, racial, and political backgrounds is a goal of the Mobile Museum of Tolerance and they also offer lessons on the Civil Rights Movement in America.
