November 2022 was Shakespeare month at Samson Academy! We learned about Shakespeare himself and read Midsommer Night’s Dream. We made puppets based on characters from the play and students memorized and individually recited Puck’s last speech. “If we shadows have offended…”

We also read Don Quixote and learned the expression “tilting at windmills” as well as the definition of a “tragic hero.”

We also learned about Europe’s Little Ice Age as well as London’s Great Plague and Great Fire.

For science, we did a unit on the nervous system and made a model of a neuron.
