Quiz and Keynotes

For tomorrow Craig will bring in a total of eight facts and eight images about the Waldeesmuller Map of the World; Riley will bring in eight facts and eight images about the Magna Carta.

Leta, should she check the blog, wants to come in prepared for the quiz and with eight images and eight facts about the English puritans and the discomfort they felt that would eventually lead them to found colonies in Holland and the New World.
