Ancient Civilizations is one of the joint projects between Miss Laura and Miss Mary Beth. It blends the Social Studies objectives from both the English and Spanish programs, and includes the library, computer, art, music, and PE teachers’ support in their classes as well. Students study the six major river valley civilizations of the ancient world (Greece, Rome, China, Mesopotamia, India, and Egypt), and then create a presentation to present in English and Spanish for the 5th graders. They finish their unit with Olympic Games, where each civilization competes against the others, and then share a picnic of foods from each culture.
