Their teacher, Nancy Gardner says they talked a lot about the tragedy because her students had so many questions.
“They were really sort of worried about the kids in the schools and realizing that kids their age are affected by disasters like this and they wanted to do something,” said teacher, Nancy Gardner.
so the kids collected toiletries to donate to the red cross.
