On January 8th and January 10th every 6th grade student participated in our annual Walk Through the Ancient World “on campus” field trip. Each 6th grade Ancient History Class was divided into 3 teams – Egypt, Greece and Rome. Depending on what team a student was placed on, they were given a blue character card from their team’s ancient civilization. All students were encouraged to create a costume and props for their character. Many of the students memorized the lines that they recited in front of their peers (which were on their blue character card). In addition to this, each team wrote a skit script that taught their peers (and all of the parents who were in attendance) about the daily like of their teams ancient civilization. This fun, engaging, interactive event was held in the Garage Youth Room. A fun, education time was had by all. Events like this definitely make history come alive!
