ancient greece studies (the books)

photo :: found on pinterest
thehobbit  is studying ancient greece over the summer with friends. instead of meeting for classes, they'll do the work on their own time, then meet twice monthly for activities, games, & a party. sort of a freaky, backwards summer camp, i suppose.

because we have so little time, i decided to stick with just a few things: the basics of when & where & who, mythology, & the olympics. that last would not be one of my choices were it not an olympic year.

like i did with our middle ages studies (here & here), i thought i would share resources with you. here are the educational books we are using - in no particular order:

groovy greeks activity book - i've not yet looked through this one, i only just ordered it.
ancient greece! 40 hands-on activities - borrowed from auntiepaper.
classical kids - ditto this book

& those for (more importantly) fun:

the lost hero - i know this one is a series, but book 2 is roman-themed. we'll save this for autumn :)

whew, that was a lot of linking! links & ideas will have to wait for another day.
