The Remembrance Day assembly went well. Mr. Monkeyman and Superbanana did a great job as Masters of Ceremonies, Rubberlemons spoke clearly and was a candle lighter, FluffyKittens, Mr. Sizzlybacon, and Shadowdog hung the cranes on the tree. This assembly is always a good time to reflect on how lucky we are to live in peace.
Mr. Hazell taught us that more Canadians were killed in World War I, 60 000, than in World War II, 45 000. The fighting in WWI was mainly in trenches where the conditions were deplorable! Men had to go to sleep cold and wet, and woke up cold and wet. There were 450 miles of trenches! What was an interesting thing you learned or saw today? Leave a detailed response. If your answers are deep-thinking and thoughtful, I will share them with Mr. Hazell when I see him next.
