Drama Festival: A Roman Time Line
Each primary class at Ambrit Rome International School puts on a play during the month of May. The fifth grade classes wrote twelve skits about events from the history of ancient Rome. Each class was responsible for acting in four of the skits. The finished production was an exploration of twelve important scenes along a Roman Time Line.
Here are photos of the actors from my classroom.
