Eighth graders recently finished the book A Long Walk to Water in their literature class and watched the movie, The Good Lie. They also viewed interviews with cast members who were once child refugees who came to the USA for a better life. These actors and actresses spoke of how grateful and thankful they were for all that was done for them in this country.
In making connections to these interviews for the book, A Long Walk to Water, students designed holiday feathers with their own thoughts for the hallway bulletin board turkeys. Their feathers stated what they were thankful for. Not only were their feathers colorful, their thoughts were gratifying.
