Ancient Greece Geography Project -- Aegean Sea

We added labels to our map of ancient Greece. Then we
took turns adding deep blue water and making the Aegean Sea!

It was a good lesson on much more than just the
geography of ancient Greece. Some of the islands were
covered by the water. We talked about the fact that
there are mountains under the oceans. We also talked
about the fact that when the levels of the seas drop,
some of those underground hills and mountains would
become islands once more. ED had poured some of her
water on the "land" and we talked about how lakes and
ponds form in the depressions. The kids amaze me with their insights.

The kids spent quite a bit of time sailing Odysseus's fleet (little
leaves) around the Aegean!!
