We had a lot of classrooms celebrating MLK day a little early today.
Some classes watched the famous speeches.
We had a class act out Rosa Parks on the bus.
We had a class have half the students with beads and half without. Beads had special privileges, non-beads did not. Then, halfway through the day they switched. The teacher was able to get them to really experience injustice. Such a cool lesson all day!
We had a class break a brown egg, and then break a white egg. Students were able to observe that eggs are all the same on the inside.
COOL STUFF!!!! We have such a great school community.
REMINDER THAT THERE IS NO SCHOOL 1/16 and 1/17 - SEE YOU WEDNESDAY!!
Special thanks to the Hardy/Johanson and Flan Clans for helping with the enormous task of duct taping. In the end, I would say about 300 or more kids placed a piece of tape. It was a pretty darn fun way to start the day.
Have a great weekend everyone!
