- Theodore Roosevelt
Oddly, they were not very amused with me after I broke their hieroglyphic pots during our study of Egypt (after learning about Teddy's family trip there). We learned about the job of an archeologist by watching a Scholastic video by archeologist Dr. Ruben Mendoza and then headed off to the sandbox to dig up their broken pots. Much to their chagrin, their pots are still not completely assembled!
Despite their frustration over their pots, we are having a grand time learning about Teddy and his travels as a young boy. I am looking forward to our time as we focus on the relationship that Teddy had with conservationist John Muir and am planning a school wide conservation effort in conjunction with our student council.
If you don't know much about TR yourself, I highly encourage you to take the time to learn. He truly was an amazing man and one of great inspiration for all!
