Another project was our Greek/Roman myth books. From the beginning to almost the end of our unit, we collected famous myths read to us by our teachers and put them into a book with blank pages. We also had to make our own illustrations and book covers as well. This was also one of our biggest projects, but I am really proud how my book turned out.
Our latest project was our "Day in the life" story set in Pompeii. We each had to choose what we were in Ancient Roman society (slave, merchant, senator) during the time when Mt. Vesuvius erupted and buried Pompeii in ash and debris. We could choose what we were doing, if we lived or died, and describe the people and events around us, the possibilities were endless. Then we built a volcano on the bulletin board and our stories were on display for Open House.
