Paper Clips

We just watched the most amazing movie tonight. It's called Paper Clips. It is about a project in a middle school in Whitwell, Tennessee. The students are studying about the Holocaust and are trying to understand how many six million is. They decide to collect six million paper clips. It became a life changing experience for everyone involved - the students, teachers, and community. I cried through much of the movie, but it was actually pretty uplifting. Everyone should see this movie!

Sounds interesting. A unique way for kids to visualize six million. Thanks for sharing. Jenna Louise

What a brilliant way to get to understand the concept of six million. It must have really brought the effects of theHolocaust home to them

Hi, C! Thanks for the recommendation. I'll take a look. Crying is good; it cleanses the soul and releases your sensitivity and love to the world. ;-D

I would like to see this as well. Is it a new movie that blockbuster would have?
