Tuck Everlasting

We have started our first fifth grade core book, Tuck Everlasting, in class today.  To start off thinking about the themes that are presented in this book, we had a discussion about whether or not we'd be in favor of immortality. I have to say, usually when this topic is presented, most kids are in favor of the idea. Our class however mostly agreed that having everlasting life would have some downfalls.  I was impressed with the discussions and ideas I heard as I was walking around the room. We will be listening to parts of the book on tape in class and participating in literature circles to discuss the book together. So far, the kids have really seemed to enjoy it! Here are some pictures of a few of them enjoying the story :)
