Expedition Earth: Greece

γεια σου (pronounced yah-soo) and welcome to our Expedition Earth week on Greece!

  • How to pray for the Greek people
  • About children in Greece

Learned about animals from Greece and added them to our animal wall

Tried to build the Greek Parthenon using Nuudles, we’ll just say that one didn’t work out that well, but it was still fun trying!


We completed our Greece lapbook activity:

And learned about the Greek flag:



That’s it for our week in Greece, now we’re taking a small break to work on our Expedition Earth Christmas Around the world mini-units!

    This is awesome, do you do the same activities for all of your kids of different ages? I like the God's animal page. Lifewithmadeline.blogspot.com

    They do the same activities, but just at different levels. For example on the animal lapbook component, my preschooler just cuts hers out, sometimes she colors the cover page. The older kids do all that as well as write the sentences out.My preschooler does do our map each day though and knows where all the countries we've learned are along with their capital and how to say hello in their language. Then of course she does the crafts with us too.She doesn't do any reports, I do quiz her but it's orally not written.
