This week in Social Studies the students began their unit on Ancient Greece. Hopefully your child has already started to see the connections and influences that the Greeks have on our world today. Students explored the geography of Greece’s mainland and islands using the Five Themes of Geography. They completed a TALDOGS map of the region as well. They are currently learning the 12 main gods and goddesses. There will be short quiz on Monday on the 12 Olympians. Students can use the quizlet on Google Classroom to help them study.
Today, the students did a great job performing the Trojan War from Homer’s Iliad. J Next week, we will analyze more of their influence in art and architecture.
Have a great weekend!
