Cynthia & her Mom

Some types of meat have more fat than others. Many people avoid pork and beef because they are higher in fat than poultry and fish.

Some people don't eat meat for religious reasons.

Some people don't eat meat because of the way the animal is treated before it is killed for it's meat.

If a person wants to be a vegetarian or vegan, they have to be sure to get enough protein and iron from the other types of foods they are allowing themselves to eat, or they will get sick... especially children! :)

About 209

  • Room 209
    Hi we are room 209. We are students in the Chicago Public Schools and we maintain this blog. This blog is a way of asking questions, writing about the things we are learning, discussing ideas from many sources, (books, blogs, letters, interviews) and reflecting on those ideas. Our teacher is Ms. H. You can e-mail her at the link on this page. You can comment on our questions or about our writing by clicking on the word comments at the bottom of each post. We are 2nd graders in the public schools so of course Ms. H moderates this blog for us. If this blog has inspired you and you want to leave us a comment please do so. If you want to talk with other adults about what we are talking about or if a comment you left here earlier has been moderated there is another blog about~209, which is this blog unmoderated.
