SNOW DAY, but the learning keeps going!

Enjoying your snow day? I am. Although we aren't in school you can still learn things, get away form the TV and video games.

  • If I had seen you in class today we would have drawn a map of Greece, free hand, not fill in the blank outline map.

  • Log in to the online textbook and locate the map of Ancient Greece.

  • You can always search for a map of Ancient Greece on the internet.

  • Draw an outline map of Greece and label the following locations: Athens, Sparta, Marathon, Olympia, Delphia, Peloponnesus, Crete, Aegean Sea and Mediterranean Sea, Macedonia and Asia Minor.
