Greece was quite the adventure and many of the kids got the opportunity to understand a bit better the life in ancient Greece. Ask them about the horrors of the Sparta city-state.
We are going to tackle China next. We will be taking on the challenge of creating an ancient method of making ink and then creating an ancient Bamboo painting!
Check out the following link to see the project that we will be doing on Monday.
To make this happen we will need some supplies, I will send out a signup genius for donations. This project will be a little messy as they are making ink from berries. If you don't want your child's clothes to get stained, you may send an apron to school with them. We would love to get these supplies by Friday, if possible. If we can't get what we need, then we will look for other supplies that we can use. We will be working on another project for this week so that we can get the supplies for this next project.
Many of your children had a poor result for the test we had on Greece. On Thursday after school I will be holding a social studies test review. If your child would like to attend to help their grade, please send an e-mail and let me know. On Thursday, if your student is attending the review, you may show up at 3:30 for pick-up so that you don't create extra congestion in the parking lot.
Have a great week.
