As my students work with a project that we will announce soon to promote awareness about human trafficking, here is another website with information on trafficking. The worst thing that "the average life span of a child caught in the sex slave trade is two years." My heart breaks. I'm not going to sit around and whine about it - take action.
Pi day is this week. Have you planned for Pi day? Here are quite a few lesson plans including powerpoints and other activities. (Remember to have students bring real PIE or make one for them.) Make math fun and Pi day is a great way to do that!
Another website promoting action to end modern day slavery. (How can we say modern day and slavery in the same sentence. I mean, come on. Slavery belongs in caveman times and even then, I believe the sensibilities of humans were even well developed enough to feel the injustice of such a thing.) If you're looking for a way to involve your students, there are ways to do it.
