Let’s Have Our Own Ancient Greek Olympic Games


What could be more fun than competing with other families, or friends, while you reenact Classical Greece with competitions, prizes, and fun? You might want to name your teams after Greek city-states like we did. The Ancient Greek city-states were always fighting one another, but every four years, a truce was declared. Greek men gathered at Mt. Olympia to participate in athletic events, competing against one another. Our modern Olympic Games are modeled after these ancient ones.

One way to make your study of Ancient Greece come alive is to set up your own Olympic competition. That’s what we did and we had a blast! We had all kinds of athletic events with all of our city-states (families) competing. What a fun day! Of course, we dedicated our event to the Lord instead of the Greek idol/gods. This book will make it easy for you and your family to hold your own Ancient Greek Olympic Games–we made the planning process simple. What a fun way to learn history!
