    I taught Greece to 4th graders---Get the video, Ancient Civilizations for Kids: Ancient Greece---it's great.

    Also I put the kids in groups and each group was assigned a polis or city--we had the Spartans, Athenians, Corthians, etc. They would do projects and different things to earn points---this led to talking about how competion was HUGE in Greece---I had a handout with over 60 projects they could do with an assign point value--they each had to earn 150 points for their team. Projects ranged from taking pictures in their community of the 3 different columns to making Greek coins out of clay to wearing a "toga" during the school day (which surprisingly the kids LOVED dressing as a Greek for the day)!
    Hope that helps!
