Our students have been learning about that infamous day on December 7, 1941 (Pearl Harbor). I was fortunate enough to visit the Pearl Harbor Memorial in 1993. With December 7 around the corner (“a date which will live infamy”), I decided to take my students on a virtual tour to the site of the sunken USS Arizona in Pearl Harbor.
Thank you, Billy Terry, for sharing the story of your grandpa with me so I could then share it with our kiddos. We learned what a brave man he was. I’m glad he got to go back to the site of Pearl Harbor and take his grandson. Your grandson is right, “He is the epitome” of the greatest generation.”
Our students also made Pearl Harbor Blackout Poetry and were involved in a Pearl Harbor Escape Room.
We honor all the men and women who so bravely served our nation during WWII.
