My kids weren't so much for history, but I downloaded a couple of these Lego-themed packs and let them play with their Legos while we studied our first two historical eras...and they loved it! They live for Legos (or, I guess, Bricks) and will do anything to get me to let them play during school. Like that other review says, this is not a curriculum, but a bunch of activities to supplement a curriculum. However, I was looking for activities to supplement, and get the kids interested, so it worked out perfectly!!

NOT what I expected
Aug 26, 2015
I expected a lesson that would do some actual teaching of greece, instead a got a bunch of notebooking pages and some activity sheets. Hmm... Either I read the product incorrectly or a better job of explaining the product needs to happen. Would NOT have paid what i did for this product had I been properly able to view it ahead of time. I saw no lesson in here at all...just "stuff to do" to supplement a study of Greece. It will help with our study of Greece, but just not the way I had intended it to.

I believe in hands-on learning as the most engaging form of instruction. Our family spends part of the year traveling and part homesteading. Our resources will grow as the children grow.
