STEM 7th Graders Ask, “How heavy are your ‘Chains’?”

STEM 7th Graders Ask, “How heavy are your ‘Chains’?”

Students in Mrs. April DosRamos’ 7th grade ELA class are reading the book A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.  In the story, Scrooge encounters Marley’s ghost wearing a chain. This chain symbolizes the burdens from wrongdoings that weigh a person down.  The “chains” keep them from moving around, moving forward and eliminates their ability to be free in life. Student’s identified “chains” that either they or people have in their lives that may restrict them from living a healthy, fulfilling life.  After these were identified, students connected the burdens to make one large chain to attach to the character from the story. This shows how heavy burdens in life can be.
