Book review: Everyday Life in Ancient Greece
The book Everyday Life in Ancient Greece is a good educational source for my low level readers. Our 6th grade students study ancient Greece in their social studies class. This book would provide the low level readers with interesting facts (such as: Greek families were not large, so it was important to have a son who would inherit family property and wealth and husbands and wives did not spend time together during the day) in a format that catches their attention (graphic novels) and is also easy to understand (reading level 4.0). I found the overview and glossary to be beneficial and the index easy to utilize.
