Grades 6 & 7 Take on the Story of Magellan

Greek Ideals Come to Life at Annual Fifth Grade Pentathlon

The annual Fifth Grade Pentathlon took place last week at the Lake Champlain Waldorf School in Shelburne, VT, with our school joining other Waldorf schools from across Vermont, New Hampshire and New York. This annual fifth grade tradition brings the students a chance to live into their curriculum, specifically Greek history, for two days. As with all aspects of Waldorf curriculum, the event is designed to align with the students' development. In fifth grade, as students are experiencing the height of childhood just before moving into middle school, the study of history evolves from story and legend into written history. The class begins the year studying ancient Mesopotamia, India and Egypt.
