Thankful for you my lil’ turkies!

We completed our study of the Heroes of the Holocaust today and began creating a commemorative stamp to honor those who resisted injustice!  See Parent Vu if you were absent to download the resource. If you did not finish in class, this is homework.  Should not take very long to “polish” as we worked in class.

Warm-Up #8 was turned in as well.

I hope you have a very safe Thanksgiving and take time to reflect on the many things for which to be grateful!
