A Study of Ancient Civilizations

Shore Road sixth-graders were taken on a trip around the world as Michael Harrold of Jambo Productions brought his multicultural assembly program to the school. The students have been studying ancient river valleys and civilizations, and Mr. Harrold’s presentation expanded their knowledge of Egyptian, African, Asian and Indian civilizations and culture.

“My goal is to bring the curriculum to life,” Mr. Harrold said. “Students need to know that what they study in school is important.”

After the assembly, Mr. Harrold shared artifacts he has collected on his journeys east, including a rubber farmer’s bucket from Egypt, a homemade scooter from Thailand and a spear from Uganda. He shared personal anecdotes of his trips to these regions and allowed the students to explore his many artifacts.
