About this title


FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. Introduces the places, people, historical events, myths, culture, and philosophy of ancient Greece. Includes forty hands-on activities, such as making an early Greek theater, building an Ionic temple, and pressing olives for oil.

From Booklist:

Hart and Mantell invite children to use their imaginations to travel back to the time of ancient Greece, offering along the way a wide variety of information and suggestions for bringing the time to life. The text is not arranged for report writing. Rather, it is organized in a way that will challenge children to use their hands and brains. For instance, after describing the geography of ancient Greece, children are asked to make a model using four rocks and modeling clay, and ponder this question: "Does the land also change and shape the people who live on it? Are whole civilizations shaped by the land on which they live?" The information--including bits about the history, art, religion, and more--is presented in an informal, breezy style, and set down in brief paragraphs scattered across the pages. Illustrations, including some contemporary cartoons, are plentiful. The least successful part of the book is the retellings of mythology, which are so truncated that their power is drastically reduced. However, the book should still give students a good overview, and it offers many good ideas for teachers. Susan Dove Lempke
