On September 30, East Meadows Elementary sixth-graders have been studying the Greek culture and history as part of this year's curriculum. Students actively engaged in many fun activities to experience ancient Greece firsthand. Family and friends enjoyed learning about Homer’s Odyssey through skits performed by the students. They made their own costumes, scenery and created their own scripts to tell the story of Odysseus traveling home to Ithaca. Students then participated in Greek Olympics later that day.
