As part of learning about genocide, inspiring activism and being global citizens, William Smith High School sophomores are participating in the global-wide One Million Bones Project.
These William Smith High School students are hosting an event at the school on Wednesday, February 13, where they will share information promoting genocide awareness and display the bones they created that they will send to the large-scale public art project taking place on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. in June.
The One Million Bones project was founded to bring awareness to the topic of genocide. It focuses on genocides still happening today in places like Somalia, Burma, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Throughout their participation in this project, William Smith High School students embarked on making bones, learning about genocide, and reasons about why it may have happened. With the coupled dedication of the students and team of teachers, the 10th grade class has created many bones, and has learned about genocide, as well as more about themselves as humans, too.
To deepen this experience, the project has been integrated throughout their classes. In science class, students learned about the skeletal system; meanwhile, they connected to this topic in English class by reading about and discussing recent genocides and other related events. In art class, students worked to create bones for the large-scale art installation in Washington, D.C; in math, they looked at the value of a human life.
Before shipping these bones eastward, this public event will allow others from our local community to tour the student-crafted bones and learn about other issues pertaining to the topic of genocide.
Please join us on Wednesday, February 13th between 4-7pm at William Smith High School, 400 Airport Blvd, Aurora, Colorado 80011.
