Today we had a special guest visit the 8th grade. Senator Patrick Leahy was able to join us via live teleconference software similar to Skype or FaceTime. He answered student questions ranging from why he went into law and politics to the purpose of his recent Cuba visit to his role in the Batman movies. The Senator's responses really connected to our learning from the Constitution Unit, but his perspective gave us a more in-depth understanding of how the government works.
