6 Weeks: November 1, 8, 15, 29 December 6, 13 (No Class November 22)
Location: Mission Viejo Family YMCA
Gifts from the ancient Greeks impact our lives today in literature, science, math, the arts, philosophy, and politics. Come take a closer look at these gifts. Learn about Alexander the Great, architecture, and the Greek’s influence to modern civilization. As we study Ancient Greece, students also work on the art of showing and not telling in writing. Using descriptive language, students craft weekly postcards home sharing their new knowledge and fun facts about Ancient Greece.
Outside Classwork: Each week students use their notes taken in class and write a postcard showing what they learned. In addition, students may need to finish up other work not completed in class.
