School Spirit! Feb. 18-24, 2016 Newsletter #21
The 9/10 History class is looking at how propaganda affected people’s attitudes during and after WWII. They made their own propaganda posters.
The 7/8 class was asked to pretend they were aliens and design a system of social structure for a new colony. They will apply these ideas to how the city states in ancient Greece developed so differently because they were separated from each other.
Alien Worlds What is Truth?
