Eighth-Grade Watches The Diary of Anne Frank

By: Hailey, Student Reporter

On September 27, 2019 the Green Bank Elementary-Middle School 8th grade went to the Greenbrier Valley Theatre in Lewisburg, WV to watch the Diary of Anne Frank.  

The eighth grade went to watch this play to learn about Anne Frank. Eighth-grade students will be studying Anne Frank and the Holocaust in their textbook in English Language Arts. 

Students enjoyed the field trip and some of them said they would go on this trip again. Kaelyn, an eighth-grade student at GBEMS, said “I learned how back then was different from now days.” What she liked most about the play was “the acting because it looked real.” 

Along with watching the play, students learned about where actors are from and how far they travel to be in the play. Overall, the GBEMS 8th-grade enjoyed watching the play and learned a lot about Anne Frank.
