lost in translation

translations are a perk of being a language teacher.  One of my favorites: from the Latin, which was essentially ” deer, with their branching antlers”  became

the leafy deer.”

in that same class, the Latin ” bolts of lightning  were hurled from the heavens at the ships on the sea”  became

bolts of flaming ships were hurled at the heavens.

the class drew pictures of their translations for a project. Leafy deer and  flaming ships in the heavens.
