June Answer for Roman Calendar

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 June’s image, question, and answer.
Question: What might Juno have held in her right hand?

Answer: Congratulations to June winner Matthew Moore (Eleanor Roosevelt High School, Greenbelt, MD), who suggested that Juno could be holding a torch for a wedding procession.

Juno may also have held a royal scepter (a symbol of her status as wife of Jupiter and queen of the gods) or a pomegranate (a symbol of fertility).

Think your students know the answer to the July question on the worksheet? Tweet @BCPublishers the answer by July 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 August. Submit an answer for your class, or better yet, encourage students to participate individually.
