Rex in the Classroom

The Rex parade traditionally illustrates a theme rich in references to history, mythology, geography and the arts-a colorful world inviting exploration. Rex in the Classroom was created to encourage and support that exploration by students of every age.

In this area you will find materials describing this year's Rex parade, including parade notes, illustrations, and web links. These materials may be used to support teachers' efforts as they help their students explore the theme and float titles of this year's Rex parade.

The theme of the 2014 Rex Procession, "Gods of All Ages" depicts gods and goddesses of antiquity. Ancient deities reflected the wonder of the celestial bodies, the changing seasons, and powerful beasts, both real and imagined. Ancient cultures loved, feared and sought to appease their powerful gods. Their fearsome and colorful images have endured through the millennia, inspiring the design of the 2014 Rex Procession.

Parade bulletins are provided for classrooms participating in "Rex in the Classroom."

To the extent possible we will post or provide links to student work as well as suggestions from educators for introducing. Please feel free to contact us through the Rex website with suggestions and feedback.
