7th Grade Social Studies
The seventh graders are in the midst of some wonderful enrichment activities to learn more about ancient Greece and Rome. They will perform Greek plays on Monday for their classmates. The rest of the week will be spent "building Rome!" The students will create Roman road mazes, an aqueduct that must carry water, and arches that can bear weight. PARENTS, PLEASE SEE THE SEPARATE POST REQUESTING SUPPLIES FOR THESE ACTIVITIES. Thank you for any assistance you can give me with this exciting activity!
