This week's Purple Paw Awards goes to Mrs. Gilbar's class for their video on Go foods. Our second Purple Paw Award goes to a group of scholars from Mrs. Hacket's class for their artwork about being a vegetarian. The creativity and engagement of the scholars remains very impressive. I appreciate everyone's hard work.
Essential Questions of the week November 18th, 2013
1. Why are people vegetarians?
People have different reasons for becoming vegetarians. Some follow vegetarian or semi-vegetarian diets for health reasons. For instance, a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and grains tends to be low in fat and cholesterol, which is good for your heart. It's also likely to be high in fiber and can be lower in calories.
2. Does eating turkey make you sleepy?
But why am I always so tired after eating thanksgiving dinner?
