Today in social studies, we paused our work with Maine's industries and took a look at understanding the role of veterans. Student showed a lot of good thinking and showed strong empathy.
Here are some of their beautiful poems:
Our Country Guards
Who protects our country from danger Who feels the danger of getting hurt Who needs love from other people Who fear of dying Who loves their family back home Who thinks about home
Who believes in their country Determined
Veteran's Day Poem

they need respect from other how fears the face of death how loves the families at home how thinks of saving how believes in wining protector
Who feels freedom coming it's way Who needs love, courage and bravery Who fears death or wounds Who loves their country and their family's smile Who thinks about all the joy and freedom their country will have Who believes in happiness and harmony
fight for more then them selves who feels that they can trust each other who needs more then they can provide who fears they will lose who loves is country who thinks they can do it who believes they will win
