This week we kicked off our unit on Ancient Greece! We will spend three weeks of this exploratory block on Ancient Greece, and then move to Ancient Rome for the final three weeks.
On Monday and Tuesday we read and annotated an article about Ancient Greece, used the information to create a timeline of events, and then created a primary source based on the facts!
Wednesday and Thursday were dedicated to the Persian wars and understanding how to read a map!
Attached here are the interactive notebook slides we followed in class. This can be used to make-up missing assignments.
*Future slides are subject to change!
Just an FYI/reminder-notebooks are checked by me each weekend-students should be leaving notebooks every Thursday!
Foundations of Art with Ms. Newstadt
Student artists spent time this week studying artist Georgia O’Keeffe and her work. They put finishing touches on their oil pastel apple compositions inspired by O’Keeffe’s Apple Family just in time for Fall. They read about the artist in Scholastic Art’s “Georgia O’Keeffe: Working with Abstraction” edition. They then used oil pastels and silk flowers to draw the lines and shapes observed and then creating abstractions similar to the style of the artist.
