In Anticipation of Armenia Trip, Juniors Create Monopoly: Yerevan Edition

The project familiarizes students with the buildings, main avenues, museums, monuments, metro stations, and notable sites of Yerevan. This will help during the Armenia trip this summer, when all juniors visit our beloved, beautiful capital city.
Students worked for two weeks, researching the sites they would include and determining what pictures they would add. They created 20" x 20" boards and selected corresponding sizes for each property. Final products were then entered into a competition to determine the top projects.
In observance of objectivity, neutral judges were invited to the class to select the three winners. Four sets of discerning eyes perused the projects, noting aesthetic appeal and quality of content; our English teachers, Mr. Flores, Mrs. Markarian, and Mrs. Terzian, as well as Mr. Moises Moran, selected the winners.
This summer, the junior class will donate the top projects to the Diaspora Relations Department of the RA Ministry of Education and Sciences, in Armenia.
This is the 8th year of the Monopoly-Yerevan project. It has evolved from a hand-drawn art project to a digitally produced and professionally printed one.
