Today we began class with an opinion piece about animal testing. We had a great discussion about animal testing versus testing on humans. We talked about how some animals are raised for the sole purpose of being test subjects for various drugs and active ingredients in products that range from shampoo to cancer treatments. Is it fair to do this to animals? If not, who will test these products? How do we decide? Overall, we had a lively conversation with many varying opinions. If you were absent talk to me or Mrs. Deraps and we will give a copy of the opinion piece to you.
After our opinion piece, we finished our poetry handkerchiefs and took them outside to show them off! Here are a few pictures -- our "pocket poems" came out great!
