About Ancient Greece

Some subjects are too interesting to be left at school! Carry on your love of history at home with Ancient Greece - an activity-packed exploration of the lives and history of the ancient Greeks.

Divided into sections, the book starts with fast facts on topics including the ancient Greek world, city-states, Greek gods and goddesses, home life, and Hellenism; and the book ends with charts of famous Greeks and art and architecture. Using this information, you can complete the puzzles in the main part of the book, plus there are hands-on activities such as making your own chiton (tunic) and learning the Greek alphabet. Finally, test your new-found knowledge with the quick quizzes (with answers supplied, but no peeking!). You can keep track of your achievements throughout with a star-chart to fill in every time you finish a page.
