Learning about Greece and its History!
Our aged 6-7 home-schooled children have been learning about Greece and its History.
Through discussion they have learnt about what happened to the barbarians who lived in Greece, how they became civilized, built houses, learned how to read, etc.
To understand the culture the children took part in a cooking activity to show the types of food that were available within Greece at that time period.
Children got involved in making Hummus which included the following ingredients
– chick peas rinsed and drained
6 tablespoons tahini
2 or 3 garlic cloves
1/4 cup olive oil
- Mix all of the ingredients together in your food processor or mash with a potato masher. Serve with warmed pita bread
The Greeks and Egyptians were trade partners for centuries which may explain with many of the foods in Greek and Arab cuisine are similar.
