G’day, Fourth Graders!

I found this picture of an owl carving from ancient Egypt yesterday. It was made around 2,400 years ago(!) and is now at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Since many museums have virtual tours right now, maybe we could go on a scavenger hunt for owl images. What do you think?

This afternoon we’ll have our second Google Meet at 2:00. If you’re not sure how to access it, or are still having tech troubles, have an adult email Mr. Mwangi and I this morning. We’ll do our best to help you!

If you can, be ready to show or tell us about something you’ve been working on since school has been closed.

See you this afternoon!
