Rome wasn’t built in a day. Important work takes time. Third graders at Jefferson are enjoying learning about Ancient Rome in Unit 4 of their new reading series, Amplify CKLS. They have learned that engineering and technology were just two of the great contributions the Romans gave to us that have impacted the world. Mrs. Shinn’s students had a couple of days before Christmas break and decided that since you can’t build Rome in a day, they would see how much they could build in two days. Are you familiar with the Coliseum, Circus Maximus and aqueducts? Our third graders are, and they love to share what they have learned about Ancient Rome.
In 3rd grade when you study Roman history, it involves using plastic elephants and other figures to recreate the Punic Wars.
