Inquiring Minds Want to See.....


Hippo That Lives in a House...
In class, we were discussing the journey through the underworld that the Egyptians took to the afterlife. While on the topic of the weighing of the heart, we discussed Ammut, the creature that eats the heart. Ammut is made up of a few animals, one being a hippo. We talked about how dangerous these animals were to the Egyptians and how they feared them.

I shared a story I once saw about a "Hippo that lives in a house." I said I would share the video...

iPad Apps needed



iPad ....
I was very fortunate to attend a workshop this summer using Apple's new iPad in the classroom. As part of the workshop, I got an iPad for my classroom. YEAH!!! I am now looking for apps that we could use in the classroom. Any suggestions? Leave me a comment on apps that you might like to see on the iPad. They can be apps for any subject.

Favorite app of the week: Civilization Revolution
