It is time once again for Poppins Book Nook and this month’s theme is Greek Mythology!
Feel free to join in the fun with the linky at the end.
We were not able to get a project done this month because we’ve been battling bronchitis. Instead of an activity, I thought I would share some fun FREE resources to use when studying Greek mythology.
Would you believe our favorite book on the subject is a FREE kindle ebook? It is The Story of the Greeks by H. A. Guerber. She starts off the book writing about the Greek myths as if they are recorded history, weaving them into a seamless story that eventually winds it’s way into known history. (She does state in the beginning that she is creating a story from the myths, and I had a discussion with my kids about myths vs. history before we started reading. We also had a good talk about what the Bible has to say about false gods.) We just love her style of writing!
Greek Mythology: It’s Greek to Me is a fun set of lessons at Mensa for Kids.
Rick Riordan has a Guide to Greek Mythology and several Teacher’s Guides to his popular Percy Jackson series. My kids love those books!
Older kids can work on a Greek Mythology Research Assignment.
Greek Mythology Word Puzzles will familiarize kids with tricky names.
Add some Greek Myth Coloring Pages to your notebook.
Each month the Poppins Book Nook members will be hosting a book giveaway. This month it is for D’Aulaires’ Book of Greek Myths, another favorite on our bookshelf.. The Rafflecoptor giveaway is open to US residents only and ends February 16th.
