Classical Greece Dialectic History Presentation

Because we studied Greek theater last spring, we opened our Greek history presentation with a play of our own. We did the fable, The Tortoise and the Hare.  We used IEW's story structure chart from Unit 3 to help us write our play.  The dc also made gorgeous masks, since the Greek play featured masks.  We made them fun and simple, using great supplies we found at Hobby Lobby.



Here is lazy hare...



Here comes tenacious tortoise.



After the play, the dc got dressed and we presented ourselves as a Greek family  (with a son who was a Greek hoplite) who had learned of the one true God and follow Him now.  DS was always persistent that our characters must be converted! 

Then we ate!



Afterwards dd gave a speech on Greek architecture, using IEW Unit 6.



Then ds gave a speech on hoplites.



Then we showed off our projects from Greece...



 from Israel...



from Israel's captivity...



 DS showed Solomon's Temple



Here's the overview shot...



Then ds showed a web site that has an interactive through the temple...



Here's the solar system which the Greek's studied...
