Remembering our first amendment freedoms, we have to think hard about why books get banned in different places. Some reasons might be understandable, but is it a good thing? When might it be good? When might it be bad? Fourth grade students will make PowerPoints with their opinions and their favorite book which has been banned or challenged somewhere.
