History
English Civil War - Learning Zone (Part 1)
English Civil War - Learning Zone (Part 2)

...which reminds me that some time ago we were watching a documentary about the Vikings when suddenly DJ said:

"It wasn't the Vikings that had horns on their helmets. That idea is based in Teutonic mythology. Only the Teutonic Knights had them. I learned that from Medieval II Total War. There were lots of discussions going on about helmets on the forums. That's where I know it from."

It's good to see them learning from games!

English: DJ did some grammar quizzes on:
adjectives and prepositions
differentiating adjectives from nouns
adjectives with -ed and -ing
adverbs

Social Studies: discussing school violence and discipline
