Covering everything from the warring city states, the birth of democracy and Greek legends to Alexander the Great and Greek culture, our warriors make learning about the Ancients Greeks a fun and inspiring experience, while also providing maximum educational value.
The morning workshop consists of a short introduction to Greek life and culture, followed by four engaging activities:
- A Greek quiz, with loads of fun Greek facts for the children to discover
- Archimedes’ Stomachion – the oldest known mathematical puzzle
- Petteia, the Greek strategy game
- Myths and legends – the children are transported to a Greek theatre where they re-enact Greek myths and legends
After lunch, your Greek warrior will demonstrate his weapons and armour. Then the differences between the city states of Athens and Sparta are explored, the children take a lesson in democracy, which is followed by a mini Olympic Games.
The great battle of Gaugamela between Alexander the Great and King Darius will round off an engaging and fun day.
