Polytechnic School Sixth Graders Builds Rome

Published : Thursday, April 17, 2014 | 1:56 AM

The Class of 2020 gave tours of Ancient Rome yesterday. The project, which evolved over about a month’s time, included constructing all the major buildings of Ancient Rome circa 300 AD.

Students used their math skills to build to scale, wrote papers about the people associated with each building, and researched other buildings that were not built by members of their class, so the tours could be more complete. The complete layout will be on display at the Pet and Hobby Show on May 2.

The sixth grade Latin class also gave a lunch time performance of Romulus and Remus in Latin.
