A "Magna Carta" Tuesday for 7th Gr. Social Studies!

Mrs. Terri Driskell's 7th Grade Social Studies classes visited the traveling MAGNA CARTA display at the Sumner County Courthouse on Tuesday. The students perused the display and then a group discussion about different aspects of the Magna Carta were discussed including Habeas CorpusKing John and more! The students walked the 3 blocks one-way to the courthouse, spent about 20 minutes at the display and returned to the school. A great day for all of that!
