After lunch the students revisited their first brainstorms of what poverty meant to them. In the same groups that they had at the beginning of the unit, the students rewrote their understanding of poverty with what they have since learned. Afterwards, we shared as a class one thing that we had each learned so far and one thing that we still have questions about. Each group demonstrated amazing growth. Way to go!
