We have been studying the Civil War in Moving Beyond the Page and today we talked about what a soldier's life would have been like.
After we finished our reading, we had a couple of fun things to do.
First, we made ink out of leftover raspberries (how lucky was that?!), vinegar and salt. Did you know that raspberry ink is blue when it dries? We didn't have any quill pens handy, so I snipped the end of straws to make a point. It worked great!
