Well, I know that I have been missing in action, but i have a good excuse.
I had the pleasure of going on two back to back field trips with my seventh and eighth grade students. I started out in Chicago for two days with seventh grade, came back to Michigan and woke up at 4:00am to catch the next trip to Washington D.C. The East Coast trip was great this was my second time going but enjoyed it even more.
Below are a few pictures of a cyclorama. It was amazing...this life size mural is unreal, the details are life like and the special lighting and effects are an added plus. This mural depicts the battle between the Confederates and the Union Army. A must see....photos do not do it justice.
