Anything can happen when you spend the day in ancient Greece!

It is over two thousand years ago in Athens, Greece, and you are invited to join a typical family as they celebrate the birthday of the goddess Athena. Take a trip with twelve-year-old Alexander to see the athletes competing in the pentathlon. Work along with ten-year-old Helen as she weaves a gift for Athena. Meet their father, Philip, as he tends to sick patients, and their mother, Penelope, as she prepares for the special evening feast.

Celebrate the history of ancient Greece with more than a dozen exciting activities! Write a letter using the Greek alphabet. Make a snake bracelet as a gift for a friend. Create masks to wear in your own play. Build a chariot that you can race on the sidewalks of your town! And at the end of your day, bring your own family together with Alexander, Helen, Philip, and Penelope to enjoy a feast under the stars!
