Mrs.Palfey greets her new seventh grade health class.  She starts off by giving everyone a chance to get to know each other.  She hands out rolls of toilet paper to each row and all she tells them is take however much you think you'd need if you were going camping for a few days.  After everyone has there toilet paper she tells them what they'll be doing.  The class is surprised to find that for every sheet of toilet paper you have, you tell a fact about yourself.
