My Favourite Ancient Greece Resources
Here are my favourite websites. If you have a favourite you'd like to share with me, please Contact Me and let me know!
Of course my very favourite destination for all things Ancient is Mr. Donn
Myth Web is my go to destination for mythology. I always do something with its retelling of Hercules and the his 12 labours.
Love, Love, Love the BBC for kids as well. A lot of great ideas for teachers as well.
If I have time to do Rome, I always use the BBC to help!
Mr. Dowling has great easy to read information.
The British Museum is always reliable. I love the set up of each section Story, Explore, Challenge.
The Real Story of the Ancient Olympic Games - Great site for excellent information about the history of the Olympics.
History 4 Kids is good. You have to jump around a lot and deal with ads, but the information is reliable and easy to read.
Social Studies for Kids - Ancient Greece - Great site, well organized, easy to read material on a variety of topics. This information on Alexander the Great is, well, Great!
"Ducksters" This is a newer site that has easy to read information. Everything I have read on this site so far seems accurate and reliable. Like all things in ancient History on every site, the dates vary from some other sites.
Wine Cellar Innovation: Wine in Ancient Greece : A site recommended to me from Cathryn Weaver and her girl scout troop, who found this site useful for their recent research! Thanks for the email!
