The First Day!

We made it through the first day without any snafus! The students were well behaved and I tried my best not to bore them with rules and procedures. We talked about the fact that social studies is comprised of four main disciplines--history, civics, economics and geography. We also pretended we were archaeologists and examined an artifact (which was just a penny) to see what we could learn about the culture that produced it (the penny). Finally, we also were given an assignment to begin drafting out a Coat of Arms. If you click here you'll find a copy of the assignment sheet.
