Saw this news story and thought it might make for an interesting "bell ringer" for kids. Teachers might want to save this for an activity to use when they are back in session.
Fireworks are an invention from the Chinese to the world. The colorful light shows create lots of smiles when fireworks brighten up the night sky. Not all creatures like the light shows. Dogs especially dread the noise of fireworks. The sounds of fireworks really hurts their sensitive ears. A town in Italy, Collecchio, has taken action to help their four legged population. They banned fireworks with noise and have decided to purchase future fireworks from a company which produces silent ones!
What do you think?
1. Would a firework display lose its enjoyment if they were silent?
2. What do you think of Collecchio’s new law?
Hope you find these occasional Bell Ringers of interest... :-)
