Government Shutdown = #FAIL... BUT we have a NEW Current Event Assignment!`

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
