On Friday, September 22, 2017 Ms. Fyffe, Ms. Evans and Mrs. Cattell's social studies classes participated in a mini olympic games as they learn about Ancient Greece.
As a team, all seventh grade social studies classes participated in the mini olympics which consisted of standing long jump, foot races and discus throw.
Students competed against one another and experienced these events as a real, text to self and text to world connection.
"With this assignment, students are able to give examples of the lasting impact of Ancient Greece..." said Ms. Evans "as well as describe historical events and issues from the perspective of people living at the time, avoiding evaluating the past in terms of today's norms and values and explain the enduring impact that Ancient Greece had on later civilizations."
Students with the best distance in the long standing jump and discus throw and best time in the foot races received medals!
