I am currently reading A long Walk To Water6th . This book is about two different kids living in the same place but at different times. One is a young boy named Salva. He is a lost boy. There are over 20,000 boys in the 1983-2005 called lost boys and Salvawas one of them. What is a lost boy? A lost boy is a young boy who walked away from the violence. It was really scary at that time especially for Salva because he is such a little boy who does not know were his family is and if there okay. Some lost boys find groups to walk in, were they find food and other things together. Witch Salva found. Then there is a little girl named Nya has to go fetch water for her family every day. She has to walk two hours twice everyday. Most girls still get water for there family in not just Sudan. Nya was very lucky that it was only two hours away, but her little hands could only carry so much. I think that it is really sad that we just get water from the tap, walking a few steps when they thousands of steps more. This is were we need to take action, to get them fresh water. What can we do to help Sudan, and other countries in Africa?Long

Our sixth grade will be participating in a two week project based learning experience beginning this week. All students have received and have started reading Linda Sue Park’s novel; A Long Walk to Water. The story begins as two stories, told in alternating sections, about two eleven-year-olds in Sudan, a girl in 2008 and a boy in 1985. The girl, Nya, is fetching water from a pond that is two hours’ walk from her home: she makes two trips to the pond every day. The boy, Salva, becomes one of the “lost boys” of Sudan, refugees who cover the African continent on foot as they search for their families and for a safe place to stay. Enduring every hardship from loneliness to attacks by armed rebels, to contact with killer lions and crocodiles, Salva is a survivor, and his story goes on to intersect with Nya’s in an astonishing and moving way.
