A Study on Ancient and Western Civilizations

A Study on Ancient and Western Civilizations

Michael Harrold of Jambo Productions took fifth- and sixth-graders on a trip around the world during assemblies at Shore Road School. Sixth-grade students have been studying ancient river valleys and civilizations and Harrold’s presentation expanded their knowledge of Egyptian, African, Asian and Indian civilizations and culture. Fifth-grade students have been studying western civilizations and also expanded their knowledge of the Inca, Aztec and Mayan cultures of Latin America.

After the assemblies, Harrold shared artifacts he collected on his journeys, including a spear from Uganda, an African seat, insects from different regions across the world and money and stamps. He shared personal anecdotes from his trips and allowed students to explore his many artifacts.
