Documentaries from the Expedition
In the spring of 2011, Windsor 7 students
experienced their first history-based expedition. They examined daily
life in Ancient Greece, and researched how that culture influenced our
modern world in the realms of art, government, literature, and theatre.
Students studied the adventures of Odysseus through an abridged version
of The Odyssey, and wrote journal entries from Odysseus' point
of view. They embodied gods and goddesses of Mount Olympus, and as part
of a unit on ceramics, students made Greek vases in art class. The
discoveries of Greek mathematicians and astronomers formed the basis for
exploration in math and science, including a study of our solar system.
The expedition culminated in an original five-act performance that
included roles for every student in the house.
