Overview

Tug the oars of exploration as you set sail for ancient Greece...
-- Become a philosopher, hold a symposium, dramatize the legend of the Trojan War, be a hero, write your own odyssey, draw a "Before You, After You" time line, make a gods' and goddesses' family tree, build an Ionic temple, make a Greek yo-yo, create a Greek-inspired hamster labyrinth, dress in a toga, and press olives with your toes!
-- Meet the Muses, Socrates, Alexander the Great, and the kid who discovered Troy when he was only 12! Along the way, visit the Island of Crete, the land of Mycenae, Mount Olympia, and the golden city of Athens.
-- Discover the mysteries and treasures of this land that built both bodies and brains. Learn why the ancients believed in the power of ordinary men and women, how the land shaped its people, and how its ideas of self-worth, self-responsibility, and self-rule changed life forever!
