Each year the Lower School chooses a country to study in depth, culminating in a weeklong intensive during the first week of February. Yesterday the Lower School faculty launched its study of Spain by inviting three Spanish guests to school to share information about their culture. Teachers contributed dishes such as Tortilla de Patatas, Albondigas, Arroz al horno, Crema Catalana, and much more while the Spanish guests taught us lessons on the language and politics of Spain and the daily life of Spanish children.
It was a wonderfully informative afternoon thanks to the generosity of the Spanish visitors!
Over the past month, students in sixth-grade history have been learning to think, dig, and document like archaeologists by conducting an indoor archaeological dig in the new Lower School’s Innovation Lab. In groups of three or four, students practice their excavation and documentation skills by gradually uncovering and recording artifacts hidden within their team’s bin.
