The last preschool conference has been had, end of year hugs have been given, off to kindergartengoodbyes have been said, National Board Certification test has teen taken, my bags are packed (almost), and my house is stocked for both husband and dog I guess the only thing left for me to do is hop on a plane to Israel. Look out Ashkelon here it come!
I am excited to see what sorts of adventures and learning the next 6 weeks of my life bring as I dig and study along side everyone's favorite Hamilton School librarian, Tracy Hoffman. Tracy, along with all of her acheology buds, will be teaching me, so that I can teach you about life in other places during other times. What a special adventure I am off on, but I need your help deciding what I see, who I talk to, where I explore, and what I should do!
Each day I will post photos, videos, and my field notes (writing about what I am seeing, hearing, and doing) here on this blog. Today's photo is of me (on the far left) with some of my favorite discoverers...my preschool friends! Your job, junior archaeologists, is to look at the photos, watch the videos and read my notes to help me decide what I should do next. You can answer the questions I ask, ask me questions, and point out things you observing (fancy word for seeing) to me in the comments section. If you are still learning how to read and type, moms, dads, sisters, brothers can help you!
So, one of the most exciting parts of this adventure, and in being an archaelogist according to Tracy, is predicting (science word for guessing) what you might find under all that dirt and sand.
What do you think I will find when I'm in Israel?
Type (or have a parent type) your response in the comments section. Be sure to include your 1st name and where you are from. Can't wait to hear your predictions!
