Students in Biloxi are taking the week to learn about and support the victims of Australia’s wildfires.
Brandi Hoxie, the art teacher at Popp’s Ferry Elementary School, is making sure all of her students are aware of what is going on in Australia.
Students are spending the week creating art that represents the country as well as learning information about Australia. “I had totally different lesson plans planned for the week after our Christmas break. When I found out about the brush fire in Australia I thought you know what I’m going to scrap my lessons for this week and teach the kids about what is going on outside of our little world, outside of Biloxi, outside of Mississippi and America and reach out.”
Next week the students at Popp’s Ferry will be sending letters and works of art to students in Australia.
