The Jaguar Stones presentation

The authors of The Jaguar Stones book series made a presentation to more than 500 ECISD GT 3rd and 4th grade students at Blackshear Elementary. Although most of the presentation dealt with Mayan civilization and living in the tropical rain forest, one of the authors, Jon Voelkel has been a rock musician for some time and gave a few students a lesson on how to become a Rock 'n' Roll star.
