olympics unit study

Matt and Bria are studying Ancient Greece this year in history. We are combining Story of the World by Susan Wise Bauer and the Veritas history cards. One of my favorite things to do is to make comparisons to how ancients lived and how we live, or what we learned or took from that particular culture. The kids loved studying the Ancient Olympics, particularly since they enjoyed watching the modern verison this summer.
They made this poster highlighting ancient and modern olympics. They did a great job and had lots of fun! We have history with the Vega family one day each week and while the kids shared their posters, we enjoyed Greek food as well.
