We had a fun Ancient Day! It has been a month of hard, hard work! Non- stop work every morning, but we did it! The class was divided into four separate groups, the Mayans, Egyptians, Greeks and Romans.
Each person in the group had a part to do. We even dressed up in costumes and tried food that the ancient people ate during their times. ( The olives were not a hit!- see the pics…SOUR!)
We loved making the iMovies for each group and eating the food! And making our costume was really fun!
Here are some pictures to enjoy! We invited our parents and our grade 1 buddies to join us! We showed them all our hard work!
I just want to say how proud I am of all the students for their hard work and team effort with their projects! I was so impressed with their costumes, videos, and how they came together as a group! The first time I tried something like this was with a Grade 8 class, not 8 and 9 year olds....you all blew me away with your ideas and creativity! You did a wonderful job presenting to our Buddies! Special thanks to the parents, for all their help behind the scenes with costumes, food, etc..and to those who came and helped to day! The Ancient Civilizations fair was a great success!

We even made clay masks for each group! Here is a picture of them in the kiln being fired. Our next step is to paint them!
EWWW to Olives!...
We enjoyed grape juice, chocolate, apples with honey, and even greek yogurt with berries!
We wrote our names in hieroglyphics, see if you can find yours!

Even the Grade 1's braved the olives...
