This Saturday we focused on human rights. Last Sunday, Halford Little and Big Sisters joined together to watch the Arts with a Heart 2018 production "Rights." The show focused on the declaration of human rights and educating the public on the importance of them, and securing one's rights. For our meeting this Saturday, Little Sisters made posters of human rights violations that they felt had been violated in their community. Big Sisters helped them understand the importance of advocacy, and how necessary it is to stick up for yourself or a peer when you feel one of their rights has been denied.
For our science activity, Little and Big Sisters were each given a small piece of tin foil and were asked to make a boat that they felt could hold as many weights as possible before sinking. We then placed the boats in bins of water, and placed different sized weights until the boat sank. We measured how much each boat could hold, and kept track of which group was the best "boat builder!"
