Exploring Ancient Cultures: 3rd – 5th Grade
Elementary children learn best with they can be creative and express themselves. The learning of history is no different. Instilling in kids a love and appreciation of the past involves exposing them to new cultures and ideas. Their imaginations will soar as we transport them to an ancient Samurai village or explore new coasts on a Viking trading ship. Students will be introduced to several ancient civilizations from all across the world with hands on activities that will encourage their individual creative powers yet honor Ancient peoples and their cultures. Whether they are creating a Inca sun mask or coloring henna tattoos on their hands, they will find value in the past and understand just how big and diverse the world is.
