A Lesson on Gratitude & Thankfulness
Tools for Learning 7th grade class read the book, "The Candy Bomber: the Story of the Berlin Airlift." After reading the book, the students made parachutes and attached Hershey bars and dropped them like Gail Halverson! For those that may not know the story of Gail Halverson, it truly is a wonderful story of hope in a time when it was needed.
