English - Pig Heart Boy
English - Debate
This week, the children in Elm class were introduced to our new text, Pig Heart Boy. In this lesson, the children debated whether it was appropriate for Cam, from Pig Heart Boy, to go ahead with the option of a pig’s heart. Half of the class argued that Cam should go ahead with the transplant because "a pig's heart is better than no heart." While the other half argued that Cam should not go ahead with the transplant because "it is risky and it could go horribly wrong."
