When Miss E began her study of Ancient Greece with the Home School In The Woods program (you can read our review), we grabbed a few extra resources to supplement. You know – more books = more opportunity = more exposure. Here are the titles that we brought home from the library or pulled from our own home library.
We also accessed Drive Thru History: Ancient Greece. Each of those episodes were fantastic, taking us to various places and ruins from the history of Greece. I would highly recommend this series to view the sites that help bring history alive.
You can visit the British Museum online. It is a simple to explore set of links in the left side bar that cover some of the people and places of Ancient Greece.
Another fun site is the BBC Bitesize history page. You can follow links to view information about various topics. In this case, the link will take you to Ancient Greece topics, though our family has used this site for other topics, as well (including WWII).
Don’t forget that if you need to do some research on a particular topic, SchoolhouseTeachers.com now has World Book online. If you choose membership with SchoolhouseTeachers, you get full access to not only over 300 courses (some of which are Drive Thru History courses, like the Greece one above) but to all of the 10 different World Book libraries, which more than doubles the content. If you choose to do so now, as of the time of this writing, they are on sale for $99 for the year, which is significant savings. You will have to visit SchoolhouseTeachers.com to get the code to use at checkout.
We have really enjoyed the study of Ancient Greece and Miss E is taking her time with it, really absorbing it all.
