This week, in Mrs. Watts' 7th Grade English class, the students enjoyed reading the novel, Fever, 1793 by Laurie Halse Anderson. In honor of finishing the novel, which was about the yellow fever epidemic that plagued Philadelphia in 1793, and in the spirit of Halloween, the students ate homemade cookies decorated like an eyeball that was infected with the fever!
