It’s been a busy week here on campus leading up to Passover break. Classrooms have been bursting with integrated Passover-themed curricula across all subjects.
During movement with Morah Roni, the kids engaged in activities while learning the story of Passover: crossing the red sea, building the pyramids, and exploring Pessach. Morah Limor told the Passover story with props and watercolor creating spring butterflies.
Kitah Alef – 1st Grade:
In STEAM, the first-grade students were challenged to build pyramids with different materials. Then a key material was removed, and they had to figure out how to build the pyramids again. In the end, during J-STEAM time we studied what it meant for the Israelites to do hard service. “…and they made their lives bitter with hard service…” (Exodus1:14)
Kitah Bet- 2nd Grade:
Students learned about the different versions of the Haggadah, made a paper Pesach plate, “experienced the ten plagues”, sang the songs and blessings, read the story of Passover as well as many Passover themed books, and focused on different ways to understand the meaning of the Four children. They also made Four Children placemats and prepared a short play for their classmates.
Kitah Gimel – 3rd Grade:
The 3rd-grade students wrote and created short skits around the story of Passover – all in Hebrew!
