Of course, we started by reading the book Big Plans by Bob Shea.
(Yes, one of my students really did say Evil Master Mind. After talking to him, he really wants to be like the crazy scientist on Phineas and Pherb. Seriously, the student is totally sweet.)
As you can see, I have my work cut out for me this year. :)
We also created a chart of questions we would like to have answered about the professions we chose. The chart below is the one I remade. The first one was not as neat. I also added a question at the end that you won't see asked in this "episode".
Now, Ms. Harper in the office knows to send professionals who enter the building my way, just for this reason. My students love meeting new people and getting to know them. :)
So, imagine our happiness when who should show up at our door, but a representative for the Boy Scouts of America!
