Third graders study Greek civilization

Kamryn Gardner and Morgan Busby show off their laurel wreaths while studying ancient Greece. Students in¬†Stacey Johnson’s third grade RTI Enrichment group at F.K. Sweet Elementary¬†are learning about the contributions of this ancient civilization to our modern society. Students discovered the roots of democracy and the Olympic Games. They enjoyed learning about the gods and goddesses and the myths that were told to explain the world around them, practiced writing letters of the Greek alphabet and learned where they are still in use today in our fraternal organizations.
