Making Connections

I would like to announce that our class will be connecting with another school in Van Meter, IA!  Teacher Librarian and Technology Coordinator, Shannon Miller, and myself have set up a wiki in which the students will be sharing their work.  Our first assignment will be creating Glogs.  Each Glog will essentially be a book review.  The students and I are excited to see what will come of this wonderful opportunity!  If you would like to learn more the schools in Van Meter, IA, click here.  To learn more about Pewaukee Schools, click here.

All About Mesopotamia

Today the students were installing their final touches on their presentations related to Ancient Mesopotamia.  Students are required to present about the "day in the life" of a boy or girl.  Also, they need to tell us how religion, education, contributions, etc.  relate to that daily life.  I will add some of the presentations to this post later in the week.
