A Note from Mrs. Rhoades

Students had a great time creating their own version of Roman mosaics! We also learned about the Roman army and began making a Roman shield. We introduced our history reader, The Bronze Bow, which is about a young man in Israel during the time of Christ; he must learn to deal with the Roman occupation and decide if Christ's teaching's are true.
