Each student was assigned a founding father to research. We then created a fake Facebook page called “Founderbook” that documented out time at the Constitutional Convention. Students learned a lot about the convention, the delegates who were there, and the way life was during that time period. To celebrate, each student dressed up as his/her […]
A couple of weeks ago I was doing the dishes at the sink when I noticed that my feet were getting wet. I looked down to see a large puddle of water coming from under the sink. When I opened the cabinet below the sink my heart sank as I realized the water was coming […]
