Using Digital Vaults, students can browse through hundreds of photographs, documents, and film clips, and create a pathways challenge, a poster, or a movie.  In the June issue, we include links to June events, including D-Day and others. Finally, we include two new discoveries for students and teachers: Story Jumper  and Study Stack.  Read and share this month's newsletter for more information!
