Au Revoir Renaissance-style!

Students said farewell to the year dressed in Renaissance attire emanating the eminent people they studied for their final project!  Renaissance authors, artists, scientists, church reformers, kings/queens, and explorers came alive as students presented in first person their eminent people and accomplishments!  Classmates enjoyed each other's lively presentations while evaluating the BEST presentations by writing compliments on "Oscar awards" to hand out to their peers at the end! What a fun way to end the Renaissance Faire Project and the school year--Click here to see the Renaissance Revival Faire Day photos too!

Renaissance Revival Faire 2017

What a fun day!  Thursday was our annual Renaissance Revival Faire! Students not only transformed into their Renaissance eminent people decked out in costume and props with detailed poster projects and artifacts displayed, but also wrote news articles about their eminent people's impact on modern-day society, and created FUTURE inventions based on their person's accomplishments!  Students presented their amazing work to parents and classes who visited the faire and enjoyed getting into character!  Some students even showcased Google Cardboard virtual reality glasses, allowing students to virtually travel to places related to their Renaissance person, such as The Great Wall of China for Marco Polo and the Sistine Chapel for Michelangelo!  Enjoy the festivities below!  Click here to see Renaissance in-class oral presentations too!
