May 31 A TOUR OF ANCIENT ROME (Sixth Grade) 8:40 – 9:30 a.m. Sixth grade social studies students curate this interactive exhibit and act as tour guides through Rome.

June 1 SAY ‘HELLO’ TO HOMINIDS (Fourth Grade) 8:30 – 10:15 a.m. Fourth grade students share what they’ve learned about evolution, early humans, and African cultures. The class will read collaborative poems, share mind maps, and teach parents and guests how to use the iceberg model to assess the consequences of external change. Students also assume the role of paleoartists and create a character of the hominid species, teaching parents and guests about the role that they played in our success as a species.
June 2 CREATING SUSTAINABLE CULTURES (Fifth Grade) 10 – 11:15 a.m. Fifth grade students explore what is gained and what is lost in the development of civilization by creating their own utopias. Students draw on their studies of hunter-and-gather and ancient civilizations to construct their own sustainable utopian island. Come see what they’ve imagined!
