If you have not already done so, check the inside back cover of our 2015-16 Roman Calendar for a reproducible worksheet that asks students to engage with the mythology-oriented artwork included in the calendar.
For those completing the worksheet, here is March's image, question, and answer.
Question: What elements identify this as a statue of Mars?
Answer: The helmet, the use of heroic nudity, and the defined musculature identify this statue as Mars.Think your students know the answer to the April question on the worksheet? Tweet @BCPublishers the answer by April 25th for a chance to win five of our new buttons. We'll announce our answers, as well as the winner, at the beginning of May. Submit an answer for your class, or better yet, encourage students to participate individually.
