Tapestry of Grace: Week 24

This week begins a three week unit on Classical Greece.  We learned about the independent city-states of Athens, and Sparta.  They were very different places, focused on different things.  Culturally their values were very different, which was interesting to study about.  We read how these two small city-states were able to stop the spread of the Perisan Empire.... about the Persian wars and how the Greeks eventually overtook the Persians as the dominant world power.  We read Aesop's fables every day this week, drawing pictures to go along with the fables, and making up our own fables!

The kids had fun with trying to re-create Greek clothing! : )
