Class festivals support the history concepts taught at Coram Deo Academy by providing students with an opportunity to become immersed in a particular time period. The history curriculum at Coram Deo Academy moves chronologically from Creation to the present and provides a cohesive overview of world events and civilizations.
The festivals enhance class studies as the students take audiences on a journey of their history timelines.
As students read literature about and study the history of a particular time, they research different aspects of that life which interests them. At the festival, they present their findings and their projects to their fellow students and families. Catapults are fired, books illuminated and wreaths worn.
Students dress and eat as if they are in Ancient Egypt and Greece, Medieval Europe, and Colonial America. They act, sing, and recite; showing what they have learned that semester.
And so by the end of the year, they know not only the important dates of those times and why what happened then affects them now; students know what it tasted, smelled and felt like hundreds and thousands of years ago.
