The Grade 2’s have been learning about Ancient Civilizations in Cultural Studies. They are currently learning about Ancient Greece. Jordan mentioned they would be having a special visitor come in and speak to them.
Turns out, the visitor was an Ancient Grecian Aristocrat! The children listened to what the ‘visitor’ had to say about what school and life was like where she was from. The children then answered important comparison questions based on the small monologue. They were very excited to hear that the Aristocrat was from Athens and needed their help to decide whether or not they should enter into battle with Sparta. The students took a vote to help the visitor. They also learned that citizens of Athens valued Culture, Science, and Art. The students invited their speaker “Athenia Jordith” to return later to attend the CGS Art Show to see their art exhibits. She was very pleased to attend!
