About the Tour
🔴 What did a school look like in ancient Greece?
🔴 What sort of lessons did children have?
🔴 Did they actually have books or notebooks?
🔴 What did they write with?
🔴 What were their favorite games during breaks?
🔴 Did girls attend school, as well?
🔴 How do we know all this?
Let's recreate ancient classrooms, lessons and breaks in our imagination through descriptions in ancient contemporary books, comparing them with representations on vases and excavation finds!
Educational activities, such as games, quizzes, role-playing, and mini contests among student groups or classes, with little surprise prizes from us, will give children the opportunity for active participation and creative reflection on what they have seen and heard, completing this colorful, both literally and figuratively, experience!
