Our Sixth Graders have been studying the rise and fall of the Roman Empire. Whereas our first thoughts about the Greeks—studied in Fifth Grade—often involve the imaginative stories of their gods, Roman history seems marked by an air of pragmatism and conquest of the physical world. The creations of the Sixth Grade convey this brilliantly. Their projects cover aqueducts, military battles and inventive weaponry, siege towers and distinctive architecture. In many ways, Sixth Graders have themselves attained an age and perspective where they, too, have a growing sense of their own capacity to engage with the world in a more pragmatic and action-oriented way.
