The second graders at Arlene Meraux Elementary learned about Ancient Greek Civilization and Greek Mythology. Students enjoyed learning about the Spartan Army, Greek gods and goddesses, mythical animals such as the Minotaur, Sphinx, and the Nemean Lion, and the Olympic Games.
The second-grade teachers hosted the Second Grade Olympic Games. Students enjoyed competing against each other in chariot races and foot races. Students also created their own web-like Arachne the weaver.
Students ended the day by running through the labyrinth and dressing up like Greek characters. Arlene Meraux Elementary students love to learn and are engaging in their education.
