Last night’s questions included:
- Agree or disagree: “If people cannot write well, they cannot think well. And if they cannot think well, others will do their thinking for them.”
- If, as a recent statistic states, “1 in 5 people experience depression,” then is it an illness, or rather just a normal part of the human condition?
- Discuss the morality / ethics of using drones.
Join us March 12 – and each 2nd Thursday evening – as we explore diverse subjects and discuss questions in an open and informal manner.
Toddler Story Time today was all about penguins. Along with our usual routine, we also did the Penguin Shuffle with shakers and 5 Chilly Penguins flannel. Our closing activity was a penguin craft and art. We assembled part of the penguin and glued it to a blue piece of paper. Then we painted the middle white and added snow and icebergs. Check out their hard work below.
