Sixth-grade students at Granby Elementary School recently ended a unit on ancient Greece.
As a final assessment for the unit, students were assigned a research project. These projects were then shared with the school during a Greek Festival, held in the school’s main lobby.
Students chose topics such as the Olympics, the Parthenon, Greek Gods, the ancient Greek alphabet and weaponry.
As for the actual projects, students made posters, Spartan shields, spears and temple replicas.
Students in Joe McNamara’s class studied Greece’s culture, the country’s religion, government and economy and where the country is located in Europe.
