Pompeii – 2022

After a period of over 900 years, the lost city of Pompeii has finally been rebuilt right here in our own backyard! After lunch on 16 June 2022, Class 2 (with some help from interested bystanders) rebuilt the lost city of Pompeii in the sand pit next to the U6 Villa.
Working in groups of two or three, the intrepid young builders built a scale model of the lost city of Pompeii in wet sand. They did this as part of a reading and writing unit on the eruption of Vesuvius in AD 79 which tragically covered the town of Herculaneum and destroyed the city of Pompeii.

Thanks go to Herr Tietz and Frau Bachler for their help. The students had a wonderful time!
