Ancient Greek Art

For history, we are wrapping up Ancient Greece. One of the supplemental books I added to the Beautiful Feet curriculum is Ancient Greek Art. The art books in this series give a broad overview and always mesh nicely with our history books. As we read through the book and did a couple of the recommended act projects, Sprite took notes on notebooking pages. You can find those in three posts at The Notebooking Fairy, my second blog devoted exclusively to notebooking.

Of course, our visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art reinforced all we had seen in books with real life artifacts. I snapped a shot of Sprite explaining objects to her father. She felt herself quite the expert after studying Ancient Greek Art. I was quite impressed what she retained and credit much of that to our use of notebooking after each reading assignment.

Another plus was seeing objects similar to ones we had seen in our art calendar. Living books (and calendars) are wonderful, worth their weight in gold, but nothing compares to the real thing.
