Pediments Are Us

Yesterday the 8th grade made their first of four trips to the Philadelphia Museum of Art, putting their Greek mythology knowledge to the test and gaining inspiration for their pediment projects. Here, they recreate one of the museum's own pediments.

This morning each pediment group made a pitch to Pericles (thank you, Junior Unit teachers Dan Lai and Hilary Hamilton, for joining each class as Pericles) for why their temple should be included on the Acropolis.
