Io Saturnalia


We finished off our month of learning about Christmas and New Year’s traditions by celebrating the Saturnalia in much the same way I did as a Latin student.  Frankly, I didn’t have a ton of time to come up with a great presentation, so I went ahead and purchased this Powerpoint presentation.  The presentation touches on a lot of basic points that you can talk about in as little or much detail as you want.  B thought it was pretty funny how similar Saturnalia and Christmas traditions are.

B’s favorite part of the celebration was donning her own toga and handmade Saturnalia pin.  I also used this Bingo template to create a board with all of her current Latin vocabulary words.  We had a great time studying history and practicing Latin at the same time.
