On April 21st and April 28th our Middle School faculty and students celebrated our 19th annual Rome Days!
Held on consecutive Friday Exploration days, Rome Days provides students hands-on experiences while studying the past. This year the theme was built around the concept of water. Examples of the experiential learning activities included:
- Listening to storyteller Jordan Wiley-Hill as he guides us through the story of Poseidon
- Looking back at the society of ancient Rome and participating in games such as building arches, aqueduct races, crossing the Tiber River, chariot races, etc.
- Creating a perpetual public art sculpture
- Julius Caesar reenactments
- Engaging in a simulation where students work collaboratively to define and solve a real world water contamination issue
Enjoy our video presentations from both days!
