It’s Greek to Me

Class # 25   Grades: 3- 4

Class Overview

Explore ancient Greece by embarking on a B.C.E journey that promises to enthrall!  Your travels will begin with the Minoans (5000 years ago) where you will create a labyrinth,  design a fresco to enjoy for years to come, and explore how Ancient Greece has influenced our culture today.  Then it’s on to the Age of Heroes where stories and myths abound. We will explore Greek Mythology and create our very own mythical characters. You will have the opportunity to showcase one of your favorite activities by writing a short play or rap, or, by placing your work on display for all to see.  We’ll wrap-up with gifts from the Golden Age as you work on a team to design and build a Greek temple. Our extended days will include a class at the Northern Clay Center where you will experience throwing a pot and adding a Grecian design, and a second trip to explore art from Greece at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts as well as architecture and design around the Twin Cities!  This will be the BEST time-travel experience!
