This week in my class we are wrapping up our unit on bats and talking about Thanksgiving. We talked about life in the 1950s last week, and are comparing it to life now.

In class, we have talked a lot about life then and now. I think that all of my kids agree that life is much better now in compared to life back then. We compared and contrasted long ago and now. I made a cute venn diagram, but didn’t take a picture, sorry! We sorted items from long ago and today.
