I had my students experience a mock congress in which they passed a gun control bill (I, the president, signed it into law). I had them reflect on the experience later and this is what I got:
Q: How did this experience help you to understand our government?
A: How much they fight.
And finally a little anecdote for you that I could not figure out how to draw in comic form:
One day I was walking to the lunch room to pick up the students and I heard one yell “Ms. Patton is coming! Ms. Patton is coming!” I walked in and looked at the student and said “who are you? Paul Revere?” to which the students started CRACKING UP like it was the funniest joke they ever heard. I’m pretty sure dads everywhere would approve of that joke.
