Hands on Culture of Ancient Greece & Rome
By Kate O'Halloran.
Eighteen simple, fun-to-make projects connect crafts activities with social studies, English, science, art, and math skills. Students explore the beginnings of democracy by creating ostrakons and voting to ostracise a current politician, write a myth explaining a natural phenomenon, and learn how to calculate on an abacus while using Roman numerals. Each activity includes a reproducible handout of background information and step-by-step directions for students, objectives, a list of materials, extensions for added learning, and assessment suggestions.
