We started our day off with some catch up work, and then got right down to new stuff!
We watched the Front Desk-Global Read Aloud Week 4 video and then started reading. The kids learned that change isn't easy for real people or for book characters, but it can be a good thing. They also realized that writing letters can bring good results in books and in real life.
We continued our investigation of Quality Education, looking a bit more at gender equality in education. We also focused on what kids can do to have a positive impact on increasing Quality Education around the world, beginning with this video, "SDG 4-Quality Education". After discussing the ideas about making a difference, we took a closer look at educational opportunities in Chad with this video, "Rain School". We followed this up with more research in the computer lab, to learn more about the Global Goals and our countries.
Finally, we shared the Model U.N. Finale Checklist with the kids. This details requirements for the Culminating Activities, which will be held on Wednesday, December 11th. Parents/families are invited for the Country Sharing portion of the Activity. We will do this from 8-9am on December 11th. We will hold our Model U.N. Debate in the afternoon, with just our Target class.
We continued our Mindfulness Practice with "2 Minute Relaxation".
