Mr. Olson was one of my 6th grade teachers in 2005-2006.(We had a team of teachers) He taught us social studies and I was always excited to go to his class! We didn't read textbooks all the time,(though he warned us that in Jr. high we probably would) and instead, we did exciting activities that made learning about the ancient Egyptians and other world cultures, fun! I also remember doing an archeological dig, making plaster Egyptian mummy masks (from our own faces), and doing art projects for Egypt and studying about it. 6th grade was and still remains my best year of education, because of Mr. Olson, Mr. Bliven, and Mr. Kostynick!

Just beware of a guy named pavolich when you advance to oak-land jr high. Nice to read about your positive reflection of learning in IDS 834.
