Caleb was interested in drawing a circular temple, while Chase put a lot of detail into the triangular pediment of his temple. In Latin class, we rely on multimedia as a tool to bring the culture, archeology, and artifacts of ancient Rome to life. Chase studied photographs of several Roman temples to design his own masterpiece. Besides ...
