The Legend of Troy

Today I gave the girls an introduction to Greek mythology, and it was so much fun to talk about. We learned about the 12 chief gods and their home on Mount Olympus, we talked about the related names of the planets in our solar system, and – the most interesting topic – The Trojan War. I remember being fascinated with the story as a kid, and was pleased to see this as part of today’s history lesson.

For history, we use:

A Child’s History of the World
This Country of Ours
Heritage Studies
Various related library books
