Studying ancient Greece is a passion for my daughter. She loves the myths, the history, the historical fiction surrounding it. So, creating a unit study was a no-brainer. We had so much fun with this unit study… especially when we combined Athena and Percy Jackson on a field trip to the Parthenon!
Are you wanting to study ancient Greece, but don’t want to do all the planning for a unit study? Then you came to the right place. I’ve already done all the legwork for you. These are the resources we used. Lesson plan printables are included as well as all the resources we used, plus a few we just couldn’t fit in.
Join me for 4 weeks of Ancient Greece Unit Study Resources!
The lesson plan and the resources we used are included in this article.
Tridents, Olympic Medals, and Trojan horses were all part of the fun of our first week of Greek studies.
This week we made tapestry looms with our Doodle Crates. We cut and pinned fabric to make Greek chitons and himations. We got creative with poster board and made greaves with Greek designs.
Here’s a really simple way to make your own Greek costumes without picking up a needle (which is great since I can barely sew a button!).
Pottery painting, building Greek temples out of clay, and making Olympic winners’ wreaths were some of the activities in the 3rd week of our unit study.
This craft is so simple. My kids love to mold clay and playing with the tools lets them be creative in their designs.
This week we added in two of our favorite things: food and field trips. We had a blast hanging out at The Parthenon in Nashville.
This was a terrific meal for two reasons. The first is that it was a simple and delicious meal. But, the second and best reason was that the kids cooked it! Mom got a night off!
We love so much about studying ancient Greece that we just keep adding things. Here’s a list of over 100 resources you can use for your own Ancient Greek Unit Study.
I was also fortunate to get to partner with Techie Homeschool Moms. This is the result of that study — a fabulous Online Unit Study!
