Around the World with Grandparents

By Julie Roer, 3/4 Grade Teacher

For our annual Grandparents Days event in October, upper school students created “Living History Rooms” which were themed to represent the 7 continents and 7 seas. On the day of the event, grandparents and lower school students had the privilege of “traveling” to different continent-themed rooms around the school where a group of upper school students blessed them with an interactive performance teaching about their assigned continent. Students equipped their rooms joyfully for the task with elaborate props and made convincing roleplays of historical characters. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed touring the “world!”
