With a focus on global citizenship, world cultures, and the interaction between people, our Meyer Prep Middle School IB students had the opportunity to hear first hand about life in Israel and the challenges of the 72-year-old state. On Friday, 7th grader, Elad E. shared his experiences growing up and living in Nes Tziyona, a small city in the center of Israel.
During language and literature class, Elad read aloud his personal narrative reflecting on his experience living through Operation Protective Edge in the summer of 2014. His beautifully crafted composition enhanced his classmates' knowledge about the history and neighbors of the land. Later, during Hebrew class, Elad shared a presentation reflecting the culture and traditions of Israeli life. After the talk and a robust question and answer session, students headed outside to learn and play Israeli games and try some popular Israeli snacks.
