In Latin class, Level 6 students are analyzing how mosaics were made and used in ancient Rome. They have also been using music to help them conjugate verbs in the present tense. Last week, they combined both of these activities to create verb mosaics by writing specific verb forms on six different shapes – triangles, rectangles, pentagons, octagons, decagons, and dodecagons.
Each geometric shape corresponded with a different verb ending. Working in pairs, they then created mosaics with the different shapes. The students’ creativity was on display with mosaics depicting faces, initials, "the verb who sailed the seven seas," a temple, and "some verb over the rainbow." Latin is alive in the Middle School!
