NO Social Studies Homework

Sixth Grade Discusses the Question: Why is change significant?

HOW CAN CHANGE BE SIGNIFICANT

Change your life
Life depends on change
A change can be significant…if big, might be special and you can enjoy
Without change, everything would stay the same
You cannot move on with life without change
Change plays out how your life goes
Change can happen to anything or anyone
Not all change is bad, some can be good
Change can be emotional and physical
Change is the future
Changes happens all the time; there's not point in time when there is no time; change is happening at every moment
Change does not have to happen to you; it can be toward others around you

All change is significant.  Change is life.
Change is life.  Life is change.
