Stepping Back in Time With Molly: American Girl

This one-time class uses our *American Girl* Molly doll as our guide to step back into the 1940s. We'll compare Molly's fashion with 2020's fashion, struggles Molly faced, and ending class with a craft Molly would have made with her family.

Class Experience

By making history relatable through their own life, students can learn how to travel back in time by doing their own research about events and fashion (online search, family photos, and talking to family members), and experience a different era through a craft.

This class is age appropriate. We will respectfully discuss the talking points of Adaptation, Resilience, and Tolerance which includes discussion of how identities of children were shaped by the Holocaust and World War 2. Utilizing our American Girl book, in addition to the definition of racism from *A Kids Book About Racism* by Jelani Memory, our time together will use a secular approach in opening dialogue with students with question-prompts, and encouraging students with the expectation to show respect in providing a safe and nurturing classroom for expressing views. Teacher Katy will moderate our conversations, ensuring no one monopolizes our time together.
Parents are welcome to sit off-camera during this class.
