so creative and brilliant. I love it! I teach sixth grade
social studies and we are just getting ready to study Mesopotamia, so
I decided to search the web for possible material. It's so clever.
I love the art work as well. I wish I had the creative energy
and ideas you have. Thanks for sharing it with others."
"I am in 7th grade and just finished with studying ancient Sumer
and Hammurabi. I think it's great that you made this web page
for the information of all students. It is also very well illustrated.
I am in the midst of printing all of Hammurabi's codes. I am going
to share it with my class and maybe even get some extra credit!
Once again I thank you for creating this web page. I and my fellow
students are sure to learn

I came upon your site while doing some research for someone in a computer
lab for 11-13 year olds. I couldn't let the opportunity pass without
taking the time to tell you how impressive your work is."
a grateful teacher
"As a teacher working to create a justice themed unit for kids
in prison, I was really glad to find your site. While we don't
have access to the Internet at school, I have downloaded the information
I need. I really appreciate the multiple intelligences pat, too
many teacher's resources lack that necessary component. Thanks
for your work!!!!"
"My gosh! You are the author of Hammurabi! We
love that! ... We sent your link everywhere, just as we have with your
African myths. FYI: Your Hammurabi's Code site is being used in
computer labs in schools all over the country with web access.
I know this because one day, you must been reloading ... we received
over 40 e-mails from various schools, asking if "our" site
was down. We explained -- it isn't ours. We just strongly
recommended it, and gave them your link. By then, you were back
online. You may not be aware how many schools are using your site,
because an entire day of kids from one school will read as 1 on your
counter. But, if you reload your site Mon-Fri, please keep this
in mind -- your site is loved and used, nationwide!"
"Thank you again for
all your work. Creative, original, and fun! (And excellent
learning adventures!) You are truly a gift to the web!
I hope you find time to write many more sites!"
