The Renaissance Faire was put on by Mrs. Rhee’s 7th grade history classes. It was during Advisory and Periods 1 and 2 on Tuesday, May 9. It was held in the 6th grade patio. The Renaissance Faire consisted of games where the player(s) learned different things about the Renaissance. Some of the games you could find there were games called Fashion FeverBuild a Dome, The Script and Sculpt a Face. You could get prizes, but they mostly consisted of candy.

There was food too. Parents brought a variety of snacks. There was pasta, cookies, pizza, and much, much more. Many parents volunteered to watch and help out with the faire. Some watched the entrances/exits, others helped hand out food, and some just supervised. The parents were a great help.

Students, in groups of 4 or 5, ran their games in different shifts. They worked together to set up their games during what would have been Advisory. During what would have been 1st period, the groups split in half, half stayed to work the booth, the other half went to play other games and eat food. Then they switched during 2nd period. Students dressed up in Renaissance costumes for extra credit. The topics the games covered were theater and drama, fashion, clothing, and social classes, art and artists, science and math, architecture, music, musicians, and instruments, and playwrights, authors, and poets. At every booth, the player(s) learned something about the Renaissance.
