Water for Sixth Grade is Resting, for now....

We are in a transition period. We have finished Greece but not yet started Rome. We have been focusing on our scrapbook the last few days, making good progress. Soon, we will begin ancient Rome. This is our 7th ancient civlization unit of the school year. We have eight total, which clearly shows us that we are rapidly approaching the end of our time together. However, don't search for the light at the end of the tunnel just yet because we have some big things still ahead of us. During this transition time, Water for Sixth Grade has been resting. It needs its rest because it will be relied upon heavily in the ancient Rome unit. WSG will be without a doubt your number one advantage in being successful in ancient Rome. So, this week, as the Blog gets some rest, you too need to get some rest and get rejuvenated for a big unit. Ancient Rome is a place like no other we have studied yet. Greece has mythology, but Rome has so much more. We will work our way through Gladiators, roman mythology, Pompeii, Colosseum, emperors, republic, Christianity, Punic Wars, and perhaps have an adventure or two. We will see the return of BlueMan, but also experience some new things as well. Ancient Rome: Buckle up. Boom.
