This book is a kid’s guide to the history and science of life in ancient Greece. There are 15 different hands-on activities for kids to build, explore, and learn. Kids can benefit from learning different cultural contributions to science in this book. The book is for age 9 and up, and would not be suited for anyone younger than that. This book would be a good reference guide to assist in finding the origins of many modern scientific debates. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0974934461, Paperback)

Children will learn all about different civilizations and inventions—the way they changed history, their evolution over centuries, and their influence on modern times—through the activities and anecdotes provided in this interactive series.

Kids discover the origin of ancient Greek theories, such as anatomy, geography, and democracy, and the ways they continue to influence modern-day thinking with the absorbing time lines, sidebars, and activities included in this guide. Profiles of more than two dozen famous historical figures explain how their inventions are used in the modern world and provide insight into the experimental nature of the Aegean people. Fifteen activities allow children to re-create some of the scientific discoveries while learning how to use scientific reasoning, develop theses, and find supporting evidence.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:07:12 -0400)

Explores the history and science of ancient Greece, teaching about Greek innovations and ideas of philosophy, government, science, religion, sport, and warfare, and how they have shaped world history and our own world view.
