Ancient Greece

Children are often surprised to find just how much impact the Ancient Greeks had on our lives today - in the arts, mathematics, philosophy, science, literature, theatre and politics (democracy). And of course the Olympics, coming up every 2 years, provide a perfect excuse to explore Ancient Greece and the first Olympics, held in the city of Olympia in 776 BC. We have many ideas to help you in your explorations below, including crafts with an Ancient Greek theme, Greek myths, puzzles based on the Greek gods and myths, and themed printables to use in your school projects and notebooks.
