This Friday is the We Day event in Toronto. During English class we watched the We Day promotional video and talked about youth activism. We had previously discussed Craig & Marc Kielburger who started Free the Children when they were children themselves. On Friday we will watch some of We Day live in the class and we will blog about what being an activist for social justice means, both locally and globally.
Here is the We Day video:
During math the grade sixes went to a presentation by M.A.D.D. The grade fives discussed mental math strategies for multiplying and finished our work on Multiplying by tens and hundreds. Those who did not finish have homework.
