Hey baby birds...the government shutdown yesterday #sad.... What does that mean? Is it like "closed" or does it mean certain things work and don't work? Does the president still work? I dunno...there's lots to this complication!
I would like you to do a current event on the government shutdown. We start our government unit next week, ironically as the government does not work! Below are a few links you can choose from to write about the shutdown. This current event is due Friday, October 11
