The Week of November 21, 2016

There's so much to be thankful for in our classroom this week!  I'm happy to spend each day learning about our amazing world with you!  Let's make the most of our last two days together before our Thanksgiving break!

Most of us have the luxury of celebrating World Toilet Day by having an actual toilet to use, but for 2.5 billion people in the world, toilets are yet to be a part of their lives.  World Toilet Day is marked each year on November 19th and aims to raise awareness about the fact that 1 in 3 people in our world do not have access to a basic toilet and to encourage policies that increase sanitation especially for the world’s poorest people.

We will celebrate World Toilet Day and spread the word about the need for sanitation for all by creating World Toilet Day floats for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade!  Please bring in a shoebox and any other supplies you wish to use from home for your creation.  Your finished float is due before you leave for holiday break.  Use the following rubric as you create your float.

I've posted an announcement in your Google Classroom program containing some sources you can use to research sanitation around the world.  Feel free to use the following, as well:

On another note, we will have our annual evacuation drill Tuesday morning.

Have a wonderful weekend!
Mr. Trent
