Our Unit on Mesopotamia concluded with our fabulous living museum. Each student “wax figure” came alive and presented an artifact or city plan to the visiting classes. The older kids did such a great job; we are so proud of them. If you didn’t get a chance to visit the museum yesterday, please stop by during the week. The artifacts and maps will be on display until Friday.
Our next unit will be Central and South America. This will be mostly a project based unit as the students choose a country to study and create displays individually or in groups to share their learning and teach their peers. They will study the geography, culture, and a little history and generate their own questions and direction, with guidance, in this project.
Today we have the Mercado. Brenda has worked hard on preparing the older kids for this wonderful, traditional event at Rivendell. They have been practicing Spanish phrases and even performed a skit for the rest of the school yesterday. We will take some photographs and post them on the blog as soon as possible.
