Let the Walls Come Down!

Resource Page:  Helping Students Cope with Terrorisim

Peace Poems - Grahamwood Elementary CLUE students invite classes from around the world to contribute to an ongoing poem about peace: Peace Talk. This collaborative poem commemorates all those touched by the tragedy of 11 September 2001 and extends our sincere hopes for world peace.  Our poem begins:

Peace is a puzzle waiting to be solved,
Peace is a story waiting to be told.

Will you help us create a living poem about peace?

Let the Walls Come Down!  Students explore the visible and invisible walls in our world and determine ways to break down barriers. Participants will take a virtual tour through the catacombs of the Western Wall in Jerusalem, identify the different reasons various walls (Great Wall of China, Berlin Wall, the Wall of Shame, Washington War Memorial, Western Wall) were built and brainstorm for ways to break down the invisible walls that prevent people from connecting with one another.
