and if we have time...
The novel Flowers for Algernon is a very exciting tale of a middle aged man who suffers in his daily life. This novel shows the need for society to open up their eyes and see the beauty hidden inside these people. It highlights the struggles and obstacles disabled people face on a daily basis. Disabled people such as Charlie strive to be people they are not. They feel they need to change in order to be accepted by communities around them. This novel should inspire others to make a change in the world.
As you may have noticed...
THIS MAZE IS UNSOLVABLE

This maze activity represents how intelligence has barriers to it. There will be a peak that will leave you confused, similar to Charlie's intelligence. Because Charlie's intelligence has reached the highest point, he can no longer keep any more of his intelligence.
We now ask you to please put your phones away.
