#OnThisDay in 1943, The Philadelphia Eagles and the Pittsburgh Steelers combined into one team due to player shortages caused by WWII. The "Steagles" went 5-4-1, and the two teams went back to normal in 1944!

    Steagles - Wikipedia
    The Steagles were the team created by the temporary merger of two National Football League (NFL) teams, the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Philadelphia Eagles, during the 1943 season. The teams were forced to merge because both had lost many players to military service during World War II.

  • Using Masks to Understand the Many Faces of Identity

    Ms. Cabanez is asking for $595.92:
    My students need the mod podge for the paper mache masks, the origami paper will be cut to decorate the masks, the acrylic paint will decorate while also drying quickly, and wiggle eyes to decorate.
