GESUNDHEIT! Did you know the first film created by the Edison Manufacturing Company was of a person sneezing? Sometimes history is weird.

On August 31, 1897, the U.S. Patent Office issued a patent for the Kinetograph to the Edison Manufacturing Company, home of prolific inventor Thomas Edison.

Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast, but the destruction wrought on New Orleans captured the nation's attention for months. Katrina killed more than 1,800 people, and was the most expensive hurricane in the U.S. history. The storm caused $125 billion in damage.

Are your students old enough to remember this famous storm? How do you convey the scale and importance of events like this to kids?
On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina made landfall at 6:10 a.m. in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana.
