Live Chat, January 22 on THE STACKS! Topic: Presidential Inauguration

Thanks for joining our chat!

On Tuesday, 1/20, Barack Obama was sworn in as the 44th president
of the United States, and it was a historic moment for the United States! But you probably already knew that — after all, between teachers, parents, and,
like, every single news reporter in the country, it seems like everyone has been talking about the inauguration. Except you never really hear what kids have to say. What’s up with that?

Well, we gave kids their chance to talk about the inauguration. On Thursday, 1/22, we hosted a real-time online chat room on THE STACKS and invited kids to discuss the inauguration with one another.

Thanks to all of you guys who joined the chat.

    Barack Obama is the first African American president. wHEN Obama was saying his speach, the man he was to repeat made a mistake.

    just to let all the people who liked john mccain to win, if you read scholastic news you’d see he would have made bad choices.
