Students Discover the French Revolution

FrenchRevOn Wednesday, October 28th in Mrs. Sinople's and Ms. Griffith's classes students were immersed into life during French Revolution. Students worked in groups to work on skits from major events of the revolution while using props they made themselves to really put them in the shoes of the French people. Students acted as people like King Louis XVI and Queen Marie Antoinette to Robespierre ( a leader of the revolution) and starving peasants. Some of the events they performed were the Storming of the Bastille and the Tennis Court Oath. By the end of class students were chanting LIBERTE, EQUALITE, FRATERNITE!
