I am a building
Big and Round
Italy is the country in which I can be found!
I was home to gladiator fights galore,
But now I don’t even have a floor!
I am almost 2000 years old.
Trevi fountain and gelato can be found just down the road!
Where and What am I?
It was great to use our map resources, and then have Tori help us reveal the Colosseum in Rome, Italy. Students then sat at tables and tried some tea biscuits (made in England, and something Tori had mentioned enjoying in our notes to us) and had the opportunity to view a slideshow of Tori's travels , as well as ask her questions!
We are so thankful to Tori for her creativity in creating awesome challenges and to Mrs. Drury for connecting us at the beginning of the year and helping us to celebrate! Learning from other people is a great way to enrich our classroom experiences!
Do you have a traveling connection to share? Third graders will continue to study geography in enrichment throughout the year and we would love to hear from you!
