After visiting animal kingdom with my class I gave my students a writing assignment. One student wrote of how he would rescue the monkeys from their captivity. It made me think a little about how bored the must be. I get antsy when I am at home for too long, and I choose my home.
The same student looked at a picture of a monkey today and informed me that it looked just like his father. He explained in detail how his dad has the same smile, and has similar body hair.
I laughed and suggested that he NOT share that with his dad.
