The use of Videos

Another great way to inspire children in the culture of the time period, is to watch videos. This video below gives details on the acropolis. Using this medium is a great way to add the visual and virtual history into your ancient Greece study.

Ancient Greece History Project  Resources

Whenever we studied a time period, we would head to the library and borrow as many books as we could. We would often get the hands-on project books because these were so much fun.

I bought the Classical Kids book - as this one has activities for both Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome. They are simple enough to do for young children.  

They include a variety of ideas including dressing up Greek, eating Greek food, The Arts (such as Aesop's Fables) and sculpture, learning such as making a constellarium and a planetary model and solar system model (see images below) as well as a simple pulley.

It's full of  easy and fun history project ideas.
