A special  thanks to  Barbara J. Forsberg for her contribution to this unit.

Barbara says, "Another thing I did was to come up with "Life's Little Unexpected Emergencies".  I plan to have a set of each good/bad news item for each student and have them draw one per week.   I also came up with another activity using Disney's restaurant guide."
