Our school has been collecting donations to aid the people who have lost their homes in Fort McMurray due to the forest fire.
To help the students understand the impact of the forest fire, I shared a few videos taken by firefighters, families, and reporters on the ground.
I’ve asked the students to watch the videos with their parents and guardians tonight and share what they have learned, as well as come up with different ways to help and support the people of Fort McMurray.
All the students in the class are encouraged to get involved in this cause in some way and to share what they have done.
I hope students are able to understand the different perspectives of the people involved and behave in an empathetic, sensitive manner when discussing the fire.
