A change in our field trip plans came up after a discussion about the earthquake in Haiti. The class discussed three options. First, donate our field trip money to the relief efforts. Second, continue making plans to go ice skating for Friday the 29th. Finally, reschedule and attend a less expensive field trip and give some money to the relief fund. The students had all day to look at information and talk about the pros and cons of all three. At the end of the day, we voted (closed eyes)and 13 out of 24 students decided to give some money to the Haitian people and attend a Grossology Museum. I wanted to give everyone notice. Please talk to your student and provide any feedback on the topic. I hope this does not cause a problem for anyone.
