    Happy 2017. We ended our 2016 classes with brief oral biographies of Egyptian Pharaohs, deciding, based on the information given, whether the pharaoh belonged in the Hall of Fame or the Hall of Shame. Midway through our presentations we decided we need a third "hall" which we named the Hall of Mediocrity.  Students also handed in an essay on the Nile River which I have been correcting over vacation. These grades will be posted on Tuesday, January 3rd.   I look forward to tomorrow when we return to school and share stories of our vacations. We will be continuing our study of ancient Egypt with the accomplishments of the three kingdoms and a hands on heirogylphics activity. We will have a test as our final assessment, which will be scheduled later this week and will be posted on the calendar.
