Roman Roads (Sonlight Core A – Week 4)

This week we learned about the ancient Romans.  Among other things, they were great builders.  Many of the roads they built still stand today.  

We put on our Roman hats and built a new road.

First, Parker dug a trench in the mud (Play Dough).
Next, he smoothed out his trench.
He added a layer of sand and gravel (foam dough).

Then a sprinkling of small rocks (black beans).

Then he added the flat stones (flat bottom marbles) on top.

It looked beautiful AND sturdy, but he needed to test his work.

I think both Goofy and Donald were proud of his work.  Great job builder Parks!
