Too awesome! Where I anticipated seeing responses relating to celebrities or athletes based on conversations I hear in school, I was pleasantly surprised by the responses given by students. Parents: You ARE heroes. Your kids are watching you carefully and love you deeply. Keep it up!
In class this week, we also did an activity simulating TAXES. As we learned about the French and Indian War, we learned that a major cause of the American Revolutionary War was, in large part, caused by this French and Indian War. A major effect of the French and Indian War was TAXES. The king demanded the colonists to pay for the war through a series of UNFAIR taxes. Using M&M's or Skittles, students were asked to pay a series of taxes to the king, all of which were considered UNFAIR by students (which is true). Students had no say in the taxes and zero representation to talk to the king about the unfair taxes. All of this is building up to learning about the colonial taxes and how they contributed to the American Revolutionary War.
