Kindercourt at Frontier

At Frontier Academy they teach Core Knowledge. They just ended the section on continents and now they are learning Aesop Fables. As part of their grade they did a mock trial and the fable characters had to plead their case and say if either they learned their lesson or if they taught the other character a lesson. They had a judge, jury, bailiffs, attorneys, defendants and plaintiffs. Britain's fable was The Grasshopper and The Ants. Britain was the ant. He had to tell the fable and the lesson he taught the grasshopper. Which was "There is a time for work and a time for play." He did a great job and practically recited the fable word for word. They practiced in class and then they got to go to a real court and do it there.

That sounds like a fun activity. And what a good lesson that fable teaches. I hope Britain's feeling better.
