Fourth & Eighth Grade Teaching Guide & Videos

Jewish Heritage North Carolina has created fourth and eighth grade public school curriculum materials. These videos explore the issues of immigration, ethnic differences, tolerance and integration into the North Carolina populace. The fourth grade curriculum portrays this story through the lens of a North Carolina family who has made North Carolina their home. The eighth grade video expands upon the immigration theme, describing the push and pull factors facing all immigrant groups while highlighting Jewish cultural practices and beliefs.
