Everything Ancient Greece: Art, Science, Philosophy, Mathematics and Myths

From Aristotle to Socrates and Pythagoras to Eratosthenes, we will immerse ourselves in the world of these (and other) brilliant thinkers. We’ll even learn the backstory of Cleopatra, who traced her family origins to Macedonian Greece. Delving into the unique qualities of Ancient Greek art with its emphasis on the importance and achievements of human beings, we’ll do projects to try out our own artistry.  Using Weird But True Know-It-All: Greek Mythology as our guide, we’ll explore the dramatic world of Greek myths!

Weird But True book description: “Fans of Rick Riordan will find this is the perfect companion book to dive a little deeper into the incredible stories from Greek mythology. Weird-but-true facts accompanied by lush original full-color art cover everything kids need to know about all their favorite Greek gods, heroes, monsters, quests, muses, and famous philosophers. From who gave mankind fire to famous fatal flaws to who stood guard at the Underworld, this book includes all the iconic Greek myths and key characters–and then goes one wonderfully weird step beyond.” 

Students need to bring an unlined journal, pencils, colored pencils and a copy of Weird But True Know-It-All: Greek Mythology. All other materials will be provided by the instructor.
