Our Class
I am a sixth grader from an advanced-learning 5/6 grade combo class. My teacher got this book, and she really enjoyed it. In the next week, we are going to start electing officials and finding ways for the John Que and Suzie Que Public[?] to make money. My friend and I are running for the 'Head Hancho'[?] election. I think it will be a lot of fun for us, the students, and it will also teach us not only social studies, and the way things actually work, but teamwork, leadership, and a LOT of responsibility. I recommend this style of social studies learning to every classroom!
