Grandparents Day

We are at Hilltown Charter School where Tamar is a student. Today is a day when grandparents can visit and see what the students are doing. The classes are assigned colors; Tamar is a "Purple." The Purples have been studying Ancient Greece. Tamar and a couple of others made a Trojan Horse model:

            Tamar's Trojan Horse

In her classroom, each student explained a topic studied. Tamar's was Greek Theater. The class had studied Sophocles' Oedipus Rex. Tamar and a classmate had acted a scene from the play, starring Creon (Tamar) and Oedipus. It was filmed by Miriam. We could watch and listen with headphones. Behind on the wall was a display of facts about Greek Theater. 

Tamar explains her project to Ellen and Doris, her grandmothers.
