We made it - the very last week of school! There are probably some mixed feelings about posting mix-ins this week. We know some of you don’t want to even think about adding in supplemental ideas this week, and are already in vacation mode. Others might appreciate a few fun links to check out on the light home days. Either way, here are a few additional videos and websites dealing with assorted topics from Ancient Rome - use them if you want to, or let them pass you right by. Have a fantastic final week of school!
