Today, we left our classroom and wandered through the ancient world. (Well, almost!)
We spent the day at World Park, hunting for ancient architecture. With a map and a team, we navigated our way through ancient China, Rome, Egypt and Greece. We found, touched and climbed on replicas of many famous buildings. Our favorites were the pyramids, the Parthenon, the Colosseum and the Trojan Horse.
We made notes about interesting features and discussed the ratio of size between the replica and the real buildling.
We have learned that architectural legacies can be seen in many modern buildings.

Have you seen any modern buildings with Greek columns?
Why was the Trojan Horse built?
How and why did the Egyptians build pyramids?
