10/13 - Students created play-doh depictions of the problems and solutions faced by early city-states of Sumer:

On October 1st, our class was visited by The Bronze Dagger author Dr. Marie Sontag.  Dr. Sontag shared her insight on becoming an author, as well as some "behind the scenes" information from her first novel.  Our village read her novel in class and found her presentation informative.  A unique experience that every student had was getting to touch a dagger from over 3,000 years ago!
