Ancient Greece: Classical Greece and the Peloponnesian Wars, 510-323 BC

There is so much to study when you get to Classical Greece that we felt we just touched on it, but they were ready to move on, and so we did.There is always more time to get into more of the details the next time we get around to this period. We covered a lot of people this week. We also touched on the Peloponnesian Wars but there is not as much about them for the younger crowd as there was about the Persian wars. They mainly got the idea that they were between Sparta and Athens and why.

  1. We finished our history for the year, which went from Pentecost through the Middle Ages. When we were done, I decided to go back and speed read through Ancient History. It is amazing how beneficial that was. Certain areas like the Peloponnesian War made so much more sense to us this time. During the summer, we are going to read a strictly Am. History curriculum because Tim (and our state) require it. We just started it today actually (we are kind of over-lapping our summer schedule with the end of our winter schedule).

  2. Great narration by Quentin. I think we're about to hit the Peloponnesian War, I'm not sure.
