Last summer I started dreaming about a new Latin classroom transformation... PEGASUS DAY. I wanted the focus to be on positive attitudes and team spirit. I wanted them to open a golden egg and read instructions and then work non-stop on Latin challenges for 50 minutes. Each challenge earned the team a different body part of and EDIBLE Pegasus!
Here are the sheets I made :)
It was fantastic! Classroom transformations require TON of prep, but seeing students giddy with excitement about Latin class is well worth it.
The wooden crates were made from scratch and I found some giant eggs online I was able to paint gold! Pegasus has wings, so it's okay to pretend he came out of an egg, right?!
We went through several iterations of the materials before we found a combination that looked good!
The heads and wings were colored chocolate, the tails were blue string candy, the bodies were rice krispy treats, and the legs were pretzel sticks!
Not pictured: my professional chef fiancé, rethinking every life decision he made that got him involved in this project...
As the groups finished the Latin challenges, they received the edible Pegasus parts and assembled them on a plate
Each envelope had instructions for the challenge that the teams had to complete before receiving their edible Pegasus part. I included translation, culture, etymologies, cases, etc.
I love how the room decorations came out!
Medusa eggs were given as punishment, and occassionally Zeus would ask the Pegasus teams for Lightning and Thunder drills!
