Fifth grade students in Steve Yost’s classroom at Neil Armstrong Middle School in the Bethel Park School District recently read the book “Number the Stars,” which was set during World War II. After Yost shared that his father served during World War II, the students wanted to know more about life in the 1930s and 1940s, so Yost asked them to research/interview an elderly family member about their life during the WWII years. The students then wrote paragraphs about these experiences and also brought some war artifacts to school to share with their classmates. Some of the items included discharge papers, German currency, dog tags and uniform patches. Pictured here with some of the memorabilia they shared with classmates are from left: Marissa Wycinsky, Emma Strickling, Morgan Beardsley and Courtney Kiesling.
