Reviews - What do customers think about Spend the Day in Ancient Greece: Projects and Activities that Bring the Past to Life (Spend The Day Series)?

Spend the Day in Ancient Greece  Apr 20, 2000
I love this book! Tons of SIMPLE yet fun hands-on activities to learn about Ancient Greece. Coupled with Laurie Carlson's books, Kids Create and Classical Kids, my kids are "living" ancient history. From very simple peplos (like a toga) to a whole set of Greek armor to vases, I have found these to be very budget and time friendly. Our most recent project was making a weaving loom from yarn and a piece of cardboard. My children (ages 5 and 7) loved it! As we homeschool, not only would I buy this book again, but we are going to buy "Spend a Day in Ancient Rome" for next year. My kids especially enjoyed the make-believe story of the two children that we "spend the day" with. Excellent!
