It's National Pencil Day
Let's celebrate by enjoying two very different stories that feature pencils.
Note from Mrs. Kent: If you'd like to learn more about Malala, you can find a biography about her inside of Pebble Go Biographies!
In this video, we'll learn how pencils are made. Wooden pencils are made from trees, a renewable resource, while mechanical pencils are typically made from plastic or metal. Some folks argue that mechanical pencils are just as good for the environment because they last longer and are refillable. Do you prefer wooden or mechanical pencils? Be sure to leave a comment. I read each and every one you leave!
