  2. Captain Marvel - 54 tickets sold!

  5. You will watch two short video clips BEFORE doing the "Rule of St. Benedict" activity. It is a clip from the History Channel special, "The Dark Ages."

    The moveable-type printing press wasn't invented until 1450, so monks would create books by hand. It's amazing! Watch this video to learn more: 

    4. Once you have finished the video, you may then open your Chromebook and read the Rule of St. Benedict.  You will see a list of 72 rules. They were the rules that Benedictine monks had to follow. This is what you are reading to complete the assignment. Read the assignment, then complete "The Rule of St. Benedict" assignment.
