Greek Column Hunt

As we were wrapping up our unit on the ancient Greeks, we discussed the three types of Greek columns (in regards to architecture): Doric, Ionic, and Corinthian.

We went all over town and "hunted" buildings with columns, then the kids shouted out what type of columns they saw on each.

I snapped photos of each one, then printed them on plain paper at home and let them label them again for their history notebooks.

We will never look at columns the same way again!
