Architectural Challenges

With the study of Classical Mythology it’s hard to miss the beautifully elaborate backdrops and the artistic skill put into them. So many incredible structures were built during this time, many ideas of which we still use today.

After looking deeper into different architectural styles of both the ancient Roman and Greek eras, we detailed the specific orders of each. Then came…The Instant Challenge. Students were split into two groups to create some sort of structure based off what they just learned in the presentation. They also had to incorporate one of the specific orders laid out. Their building materials were all foods and they had four minutes to prepare a plan and 6 minutes to actually build the structure.
