We have been studying the Ancients this year and it’s been excited to have a new way to explore this! We have really been enjoying the Ancient Greece Online Unit Study by Techie Homeschool Mom. It’s been awesome to have everything all in one place for us learning about Ancient Greeks. The unit study included everything from reading and videos to some more hands-on projects. It’s really a fun way to bring history to life in your house! These would be great for families with younger children who want to work through the studies together or older kids who want to work through these activities on their own.
What The Lessons Look Like
The lessons in the Ancient Greece Unit Studies are very simple to navigate and are separated into smaller topics. As both my kindergartener and my third grader were interested in learning about this we decided to do it as a family. We went through the units together so that both of them were able to watch the videos, listen to the stories and be a part of the projects. There is an option where you are able to make an online time travelling journal where you can write about what you are learning and add pictures of the things that you have completed. My children decided this was not something that they were interested in at this time but I think it would work really good for middle school-aged children.
What We Like About The Unit Studies
My children seem to really enjoy all of the videos that were included in this unit study. They like seeing the things that are being talked about so this was a really good feature that makes the unit truly come to life for us. My daughter really enjoyed the “Greek Art & Architecture” unit because we got to make little pottery projects. My son, on the other hand, was more interested in the “Greek Warfare” unit because he wanted to learn all about the weapons. We decided to jump around a little and explore the things that my children were really interested in first. If they were a bit older and working independently I would probably have had them just work through it in order.
