This Saturday, we had a Greek Party at the library! There were eight homeschooled kids who presented Greece. Each one did such a wonderful job! All of us learnt quite a bit from each other. The mothers put together a little taste of Greece. The menu included: homemade Gyro (including homemade pitas), homemade Moussakka, Olives, Feta Cheese, Hummus, Spanakopita and homemade baklava. Everything was so yummy!
A few kids were dressed in Greek costumes. Kabir’s grandmother made a Greek tunic with a cloak for both the kids. Majority of the kids presented on Greek Mythology. One of the kids focused completely on animals in Greece, one of them presented about important days for a child in Greece such as birthday, name day, St. Nicholas day and so on and one of the kids made a catapult! Kabir’s presentation was comparison and contrast of Ancient Greece and Modern Greece. After presentation, each child was awarded an olive wreath!
Kabir made the model of the Parthenon and the Flag of Greece using Legos. Also, he made 2 mobiles, one for the Greek Gods and the other for the Greek Goddesses. Also, he made models of Greek columns: Doric, Ionic and Corinthian. We got the idea for Greek columns online. As usual, Kabir completed the fact sheets in his folder and then we decided on our presentation. So, he worked on his tri-folders. Then he worked on his presentation.
For decoration, Kabir colored Greek Flags and we put it all over the room. Also, he made Greek lanterns. I forgot to take photo but we copied the Greek lantern idea online. Also, Kabir made Greek flag with olives and Feta cheese.
Overall, it was a great experience. If you want to, you may watch the video of Kabir’s presentation on Greece.
