On deck this week
We had a great week last week--playing our Civil War games together and wrapping up our discussion of chapter 2. This week we'll have some time to work on our "essays" telling about what we learned (in place of a test on this unit) and then we'll jump right into chapter 3 and Reconstruction. Wednesday we'll get the special treat of traveling to the Veteran's War Memorial in North St. Paul to watch some parachutists. What a neat opportunity for us to celebrate Veteran's Day.
The Civil War board games were fun to watch and play. The students learned so much about the war in this unique way. Below find some pictures of the students enjoying playing their games together, as well as pictures of some of the board games themselves.
No new projects for a while--take a break!
