All About Italy in 4th

The children have spent some time researching different aspects of Italy and worked in groups to create projects on the various aspects.

The seven groups were:

  1. Italian History
  2. Italian Food
  3. Italian Geography
  4. Italian Landmarks
  5. Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius
  6. Famous Italians
  7. The Colosseum and Circus Maximus

When they were finished their projects, the children presented them in front of the class. Each group shared the knowledge they had on the various topics and the class had an opportunity to ask questions and find out more information. We all learned lots of interesting facts from each group.

Here are some of the children with their projects:

To celebrate all of our hard work, we had an Italian party.  We had some Italian breadsticks with cream cheese to start. Followed by some Margherita pizza or pasta with melted mozzarella (or both!) Keeping with the Italian theme, we had some traditional Italian dessert too –  Amaretti biscuits with some gelato (well, vanilla icecream!). Needless to say, this was a big hit with the class (although the Amaretti biscuits were not so popular!).
