Our New Unit Study - Ancient Greece

After completing our Human Body Unit Study and Lapbook, Tiny had his choice of what to study next.

He chose Ancient Greece.

Though this will be my third or fourth time to study it, I am ALWAYS tickled to study this topic with another son.

There is ALWAYS room for a new twist or something I hadn't done with my other two sons.

Before I show you what we did this week, you can grab my first Ancient Greece Lapbook here.

Then, before I started our study, I rounded up some super fun hands-on activities and great freebies.

Be sure to look over my article, Beware of Greeks Bearing Gifts - Great Big List of Freebies and grab some awesome freebies.

Then look our first new minibook, which is a giant pull tab book about Ancient Greeks and their Contributions.

Heads Up: This SECOND ANCIENT GREECE Lapbook is a SUBSCRIBER ONLY freebie.

This means as I create the lapbook, the minibooks will be in the Subscriber Freebie Area.

Too, I rounded up some of our favorite Ancient Greece Living Books that help to round out our newest unit study.

Lapbooks - Interactive Tools NOT Just for Young Kids

I hope you never get the wrong impression of me because I never viewed myself as a crafty mom.

I still am not one of those kinds of moms.

However, I do KNOW that hands-on learning works and is best though sometimes it is not the easiest way. But, it is well worth it.

I rounded up 75 AWESOME Things to Add to a Lapbook.
