Ancient Greece — Geography Project (part 1)

This project idea was adapted from Ancient Greece!: 40 Hands-On Activities to Experience This Wondrous Age (Kaleidoscope Kids Books). (affiliate link) We bought some self-hardening clay and looked at various maps to make a map of Greece with its many islands. Obviously Mom had a hand in forming the mainland areas of Greece and Asia Minor (now Turkey). The kids did all of the islands. We’ve been reading Mary Pope...

Ancient Greece Geography Project — Aegean Sea (part 2)

We added labels to our map of ancient Greece. Then we took turns adding deep blue water and making the Aegean Sea! It was a good lesson on much more than just the geography of ancient Greece. Some of the islands were covered by the water. We talked about the fact that there are mountains under the oceans. We also talked about the fact that when the levels of the...

Ancient Greece Unit — Read Aloud Books for Ages 3-6

Here are the books we’ve been reading aloud for our Ancient Greece Unit. Aliki’s book, The Gods and Goddesses of Olympus  (affiliate link) has beautiful illustrations and the stories about the gods and goddesses are engaging. I really recommend that one! We really, really like the First Greek Myths series by Saviour Pirotta. We continually check them out of the library!!  They are all good.

Ancient Greece — Importance of the Seas

When we looked at the geography of Greece last week we had talked about the importance of boats both for trade, transportation and as warships. Our science center led naturally to the construction of their own “Greek” boats.  We looked at a couple of books we have, brought out LD’s saw, glue, tape and off they went! We tested their boats in our pool afterwards. Related Posts you May Be Interested In: Ancient Greece Geography...

She said she hadn’t done any science yet and wondered if the States of Matter unit was a good place to start.  I wrote her back and shared the free printable resource/checklist I made last year about some...
