WARREN, NJ - Alexander the Great (a.k.a. Warren Middle School Principal Robert Comba) visited a virtual ancient Greek agora (open air marketplace) on March 18, as part of acreative sixth grade social studies unit.
Under the guidance of library media specialist Cynthia Cassidy, 6th graders were tasked with creating a modern day business plan for a mythological Greek god or goddess, including what products/services would be offered and where in the agora the storefront should reside. (Feuding gods/goddesses might not make the best neighbors, for example.) Businesses in the 6th grade agora include Poseidon's Amazing Aquarium and Artemus's Sporting Goods Store.
