Snacks for the Dog Days

August is National Dog Month and we could talk about our furry besties all day, but maybe you can cook up a batch of these tasty dog biscuits and chow down on some of these Learning Snacks!

LITTLE: Of all the dogs, the three-headed beast Cerberus from Greek mythology is probably the most terrifying, but just about any dog can be tamed with a treat!

MIDDLE: Dog petter is not a career yet (but we’re doing our best!). Dog handler is a career – and a science!

While violence is never the solution to our problems, some argue that breaking rules and disturbing the peace are the only ways to get the attention of those in power. As we wrestle with these ideas and study how protests have looked throughout history, we ask, “Is there a ‘right’ way to protest?”
