Ancient Greece History Co-op - Week 19 - Review

Week 19: We did a review of our Ancient Greek studies and made an Ancient Greek board game.

This was our last week of the Ancient Greek History Co-op. We all know much more about the ancient Greeks than we did at the beginning of the school year.

This week each child had to create their own Greek board game and questions.

 They were each given a file folder and had to decide how to create their games.
