This week the 4th and 5th graders have been creating ancient Greek chariots with a few supplies and a lot of patience and perseverance. They have done a great job.

Fourth and fifth graders have been using their engineering skills while trying to build ancient Greek chariots. This week we had dads participating in Strong Fathers join us.
Fourth graders are learning about relief sculptures that are still around today after they were first created by the ancient Greeks. 
First and second graders designed ancient Greece pottery on the computer. They learned about the rich soil that brought out amazing reddish-orange and black colors when the pottery was fired in the kiln.
Students uncovered artifacts and determined what time period we were about to study. 
Their conclusion was right....Ancient Greece!!
