First day of school and I wanted to ask this question of my 8th grade geniuses: “What is History?”

Here are the significant things they had to say:
Then we watched this awesome video by Miss Hamad in New South Wales.
This year in history class, we will work on answering the questions in the video:
- What happened?
- How can I honor those before me?
- How does yesterday affect me?
- What dreams do I have?
- How can I make sense of today?
- What mistakes can I avoid?
- How can I change my world?
- Who am I?
We are already off to a great start. You can see how much I will enjoy learning and growing with these student geniuses!
