I procrastinated months before buying this product, saying, "I can do this myself, I don't need everything planned out for me." Yes you CAN search the Internet and photocopy pages from library books and make your own lapbooks/history pockets, but most teachers/homeschoolers have very full plates and it is MUCH easier to use these history pockets as the basis for your project and then supplement with other stuff.

After I relented and purchased the Ancient Greece history pockets, I couldn't believe how easily the project fell into place, after weeks of neglect. You - and your kids - will be very pleased with the informative and interesting results.

I also purchased the Greek Myths literature pockets and am very pleased with those too.

Also, for what it's worth, my kids are in 1st & 2nd grade, more or less, not the 4-6 that is recommended for these pockets. So the pockets have appeal for a broad range of ages.

On the other hand, I did find it necessary to do a fair amount of prep work for them - photocopying the pages and cutting out some of the projects. If they were a couple of years older, the history pockets could have been done independently.

This is an excellent resource for teachers and parents who are schooling their child at home. Each history pockets set has a lot of information. In this case the topic is Greece. You will find art ideas and templates for various activities about Greece. In one you might color and cut out various columns so you can understand the difference between the three main types of columns- doric, ionic and corinthian. There are drawings of famous Greeks that you color and cut out and read about. You will also learn a little bit about Greek mythology when you are working through this book. This is a great series and an excellent resource to use when trying to expand your Greek lesson plans.

Worth every penny.
Enjoy.

We bought this for our homeschool curriculum. I love the idea of this book and I love the projects that we completed but it is not for every learner. You have to cut, paste, and color A LOT. This is not ideal for my son. He loves to hear the stories from the ancient world and loves making something - such as a shield or helmet but to sit in order to cut, paste, and color - he was bored out of his mind. I do not have girls but being one myself I love this type of work - he does not. I will not purchase another one of these for my family but I can see for the right learner that this kit could be very rewarding. You make 9 sections for an Ancient Greek book learning everything from government to sports to money. It could be very beneficial for a student who has the patience for this type of project. We completed about half of it and what we did turned out very nice and I will keep it for his school portfolio. Happy learning!!

I've been impressed by the content of the 3 "History Pockets" books we've used in our homeschool (Ancient Civilizations, Ancient Egypt, and Ancient Greece). I think they would be really helpful for visual and tactile learners. Unfortunately, my DD hated all the cutting & pasting involved. She found it to be busywork.

I would recommend the "History Pockets" to students who don't mind all the prep work involved in making the folders/lapbook.

I used this to suppliment another world history curriculum with my kindergardener and 4th grader. My little guy couldn't do everything, but he enjoyed the things he did. They both loved it. They are proud of the "books" that they each made. I will try their other products.

I did this book with my eight-year-old daughter as part of our year-long study of Ancient Greece. She loves arts and crafts, note booking and scrapbooks. This was perfect for how she likes to learn. It gives a good overview of Greek civilization, which we accompanied with reading Famous Men of Greece, The Story of the Greeks, adaptations of the Iliad and Odyssey, and children's historical fiction.
Even though the description says that this is for grades 4-8, my daughter did fine with it. It could be easily adapted for younger children and would work well for multiple grade level instruction.
I plan to use other resources in this series as we study Rome and the Middle Ages next year.

I really like this pocket history series. I had purchased the Western Civilization book and liked it. Since I changed grade levels decided to get Ancient Greece book. It has many fun activities for my students to do. Love it!
