Every young child who studies the Japanese culture should know about Sadako Sasaki, the symbol of peace for children all over the world. I took many age-appropriate pictures of the Peace Museum in Hiroshima, concentrating on the child, Sadako Sasaki, who died of the Atom Bomb disease. There are many age-appropriate books that my second grade class read about Sadako that complemented our Japan studies. Students learned to make paper cranes as part of our geometry unit. My students made 1000 paper cranes to send to Hiroshima in honor of Peace Day, held at the Peace Park each year in August. I am a global studies teacher, who hopes to instill the hopes for peace, now and in the future. Our future is in the students we teach.
