We began today with another visit to the Jewish Museum of Maryland. We explored two exhibits there. "The Voices of Lombard" exhibit depicts a timeline of immigrants to the community in the early 20th century and how they integrated with the variety of ethnic groups already in the area. The "Zap, Bam, Pow" exhibit is an incredible display of comic book history including the first sketch of Superman. Many of the early comic book authors and illustrators were Jewish. Students conducted a scavenger hunt at both sites and even created their own villains and heros! If you have not been to the Jewish Museum of Maryland I highly recommend it. They have hosted us for years and I always look forward to our next tour there. We ended the day with lunch at the Inner Harbor Food Court and then outside to cool down in the fountains for a couple of hours. We walked a total of 4.2 miles today. Add that to yesterday's hike of 3.6 miles and we have marched a total of 7.8 miles in our first two days! For more pics go to the bottom of the page here.
This page is dedicated to the work and research my students do each day.
