|Assembling a clock with gears!|
Our class had a lot of fun last Friday organizing a peaceful protest in regards to First Friday Spirit Wear Day. We had a great discussion about equality of t-shirts, free speech, Baltimore, civil rights, and how we can express our opinions in a way that is respectful and pleasing to God. It was both exciting and meaningful... be sure to discuss what happened at home!
