5th Grade Living Museum Program
The Living Museum Project provides Jewish school students with the tools they need to uncover and decipher their family heritage through the objects and heirlooms found in their own homes. Through this engaging project, students come to identify with their past, while learning about how it helped to shape them as individuals and as Jews. The program combines a visit to the Jewish Museum in New York City, classroom workshops, and independent intergenerational learning. The culminating event will be the presentation in the Spring of a mini-museum curated by students at Temple Sinai that highlights their Jewish heritage, providing an exciting opportunity to share student learning with the extended Temple Sinai community and school.
