Games and Pastimes of the past

We have been learning about games and pastimes of the past .
To begin, we collected data from the class to see what were the most popular games. .We created bar charts to show this information .


After that we interviewed our grandparents to see what they liked to play when they were younger and to see what pastimes they had. Most agreed games had improved since they were younger however they think they played outside a lot more than we do now.

We then looked at power points and read different books on games and pastimes in Ancient Greece, Rome, Medieval times and the 1900s in Ireland. It was really interesting.
To finish up we we went outside to play some old games for ourselves (some of which we still play today) like skipping ropes, marbles, hopscotch and x’s and o’s. It was so fun.
