Children will love learning about each era, and then following the simple instructions to make useful or interesting objects from that time. Age-appropriate and accessible, the books are jam-packed with great ideas and perfect for use at home or in the classroom. In Craft Box: Ancient Greeks, you can learn how to make theatre masks, a a fish dish, a Medusa headdress, an Olympic torch, a perfume bottle, a golden wreath, a fibula, a Hoplite's shield, a Greek arm guard, a gable decoration, a discus and pan pipes! Fun facts on every spread give background information about Ancient Greece and its people, from food and everyday life to the Olympics and religion. A Further Information spread suggests age-appropriate websites and books, so children can go away and learn more about the ancient Greeks. A glossary explains any tricky words, and will help to further increase children's knowledge and understanding of the era.
