DISCLAIMER : When learning about history, students are often asked to examine and discuss difficult, sensitive and disturbing historic events and time periods. This resource is in no way meant to trivialize the importance and sensitivity of the topic. As a teacher it is important to set the stage and recognize the diversity of your students. In no way am I trying to make the issue seem less important, less significant, or less complex than it really is. This resource was created to allow students to move around the room and learn about a difficult topic in a fun and engaging manner. If you do not feel that this resource is right for you, please do not purchase it.
Below is a list of resources that will help teach empathy and understanding of sensitive topics. These sites offer expectations about the content and manner of communication.
