We made a Greek dessert called Ekmek. It is WONDERFUL! We made it with Lyndal several years ago when she was studying Greece. I was reminded of how yummy this dessert is and that we should make it more often.
You can find the recipe here. I did not use the brandy this time and it turned out just fine. In place of the brandy I used 1/3 cup water and 1/3 cup sugar. I also added just a little bit of extra honey.
They learned about how the Ancient Greeks made mosaics out of broken glass and tile. They got to make mosaics out of construction paper.
We looked at a bunch of Greek statues online. It amazes me how the Ancient Greeks were able to carve statues and buildings out of marble! Alina and Cohen got to carve their own statues out of Ivory soap. They REALLY enjoyed this.
They got to play this game about the Peloponnesian War. It’s played a lot like the game Sorry.
