Albert Bierstadt: Rocky Mountains Lander's Peak

Albert Bierstadt (1830-1902) American; Hudson River School

Miles: There was a cave. In the background we saw mountains. There was a forest. And by the forest there were people camping .

Amanda: There were mountains as the background and clouds with sky. The mountains were snowy. There was this passage on one of the mountains. There were some people camping with their herds of cows and horses. There were trees at the bottom of the mountains making a forest. There was a hill and at the bottom of the hill there was a pot over a fire. The pot was held up by sticks.

Games for Algebra and Geometry

The other day I read a review of a game used to teach algebra called "WFF The Beginner's Guide to Modern Logic." The lady giving the review said that her algebra teacher had her class play this game for the first semester of algebra years ago, and she loved it. They played other games too, but this is one that I'm interested in trying with my family. Anyway, I just wanted to share in case there are others interested in it. Here is the website for all the games they sell at WFF.
