Mr. Powell and his family are still in Greece and this week they visited the Acropolis in Athens!

To go with this set of photos, we’ve created a reading activity that you can use in your homeschool.

Your student can read a short passage about the Acropolis and ancient Greece. Then they can use the passage to unscramble a list of mystery words. This activity can be completed by students in grades 3-6 or by younger students with some help. The answer key can be found at the very bottom of this blog post.
