In 6th grade World History, Jesuit Academy students have been studying about Ancient Greek shields and what they represented to the individuals who carried them. As part of the lesson, students designed and created their own shields using a variety of methods.
Two students in class used sleds to create their shields. One then used paper mache, duct tape, and paint to make his shield, while the other used spray paint, old magazines, and cardboard. Both decorated their shields with designs that represented their interests.
One shield is decorated with a basketball, football, and math symbols, communicating a love of sports and math. Another shield is decorated like the one Captain America carries because of his commitment to justice.
