Parthenon Craft (Ancient Greece Unit)
I think I mentioned last week that we started a new unit on Ancient Greece. (We studied Ancient Egypt last semester.) We’ve been quite busy reading and crafting and LD seems to be having a lot of fun with this unit!
LD and I worked together to on this wonderful Parthenon craft that we found at http://www.stormthecastle.com/paper-castle/paper-parthenon.htm.
All we needed was a printer, scissors, glue, tape and a cereal box!
We visited this Art History Website (by Sandra J. Shaw) which was an art history lecture with many beautiful photos of the Parthenon, its friezes and sculptures.
We’ve been using the The Usborne Internet-linked Encyclopedia of Ancient Greece (affliliate link) as a resource which has great photos, maps, examples of art, sculpture, architecture and more.
You might also be interested in our packet on the Ancient Greek gods and goddesses! This unit includes the major Olympian gods and touches on some of the famous mythology of Ancient Greece. You’ll find that here: Ancient Greek Gods and Goddesses
