The Temple of Artemis: glue stick style

The fifth graders were assigned a big project on an ancient civilization. Some of the project is individually done, but some is done as a group. I encouraged Twinkle Toes to invite her friends over the first Saturday of Spring Break and get cracking on it! (Evidence your mother is a teacher.)
With hot glue sticks, cardboard, poster board, and talent they made this great replica of the ancient Temple of Artemis in Greek culture. (Incidentally, that temple to the false god Artemis didn't last.We've seen in here in Turkey, just a column or two left ready to topple at any moment. However, Paul's message to the people in that town did last!)

It looks great. And I've seen the remains of that temple. I took a mission trip to the town there and the building we were staying in had a great view of the remains from every window. We went to visit the remains of Ephesus one day and it was almost surreal to be walking down streets that Paul walked down. And of course beautiful.

Excellent work girls (you can pass that along). And I can't believe those guys are 5th grades. So crazy :)

Little does that sound? We're digesting the news...the Mr. more so than me. :)

Oops, but that wasn't Greece was it? Well, it reminds me . . . I have to go back and reread your post.

Still nifty looking replica and that is the point!
