Thanks to this federal holiday I am enjoying some extra time at home today. So, naturally, I am reading education blogs & trying to catch up on the swirl of ideas and cool links out there on the "web".
The above link to the Library of Congress has links to documents about President Washington including his inaugural address. There is also a link to videos demonstrating dance steps that would have been common in Washington's time. These are elegantly staged and show overhead shots of the dancers in full period costume. I thought about Mr. Kern when watching. He will love these!
Here is one that you might like: The Kid Should See This.

"There's just so much science, nature, music, art, technology, storytelling and assorted good stuff out there that my kids (and maybe your kids) haven't seen. It's most likely not stuff that was made for them...
But we don't underestimate kids around here. Kid-friendly not-made-for-kids videos for all!
