Happy Friday!  As we have been learning about the Branches of Government and the process of Bills becoming Laws, it’s interesting that the Government Shutdown has taken place at this time as well.  We discussed it in general today, including the law that our Legislative Branch is debating about (the Affordable Care Act), and which government workers are affected by the shut-down.  One of the homework choices next week is to research what’s happening in our federal branches of government, and this could be a great opportunity to learn more about this historic news event (the last one that happened was 17 years ago).   Here’s a video from Time for Kids on it, too!
Have a wonderful weekend!!
