Unit Study: Ancient Greece

Unit Study: Ancient Greece



It’s been a while since we’ve done an unit study, but I’ve been wanting to make another go at one since we all loved them so much. The next three months will be spent studying Ancient Greece (and a touch of Rome).


In compiling this list I went to many resources and I’m sure the list will continue to grow as I research. My good friend Linda (remember the book lists?) was a huge resource especially for the classically based books. Here is our book list for the study of Ancient Greece in a unit study:

My greatest dreams are to have a housekeeper; unlimited reading time; to travel wherever and whenever I want; to live in England, Italy and Hawaii; to go to Oxford University in the UK; to have all 11 children go on missions and to college; and to die peacefully in my sleep as an old, healthy woman. ♥
