Welcome to Down Home, San Luis Obispo Classical Academy’s blog! We are a classical school offering several options to make our education work for families with infants through high schoolers. Our signature hybrid program, which is part-time classroom and part-time home instruction, provides an engaging education for preschool through middle school (with full time options available). We also have a university model high school. This blog is meant to support and encourage on the home front because, in so many ways, the heart of what happens at SLO Classical Academy happens down home.

Ancient History Trimester 2 Links

A new trimester means new links and resources to share on the blog! This past Monday night a couple of our teachers did a fabulous job giving us overviews of our history and literature for this trimester. To follow up their excellent presentations, today we want to provide you with some online resources and fun things to do centered around Ancient Greece. 

Once again, these are all optional so no pressure. We just want to save you a little time in researching history-related sites for enrichment, although the following are just a few examples of what’s available – there is a TON of stuff about ancient Greece on the internet! Feel free to share your own online discoveries in the comments below.

We hope these resources are helpful to you on your home days, and perhaps over the holiday break your kids will enjoy some of the supplemental sites and activities (think E&E!):


  • Map of The Odyssey – also seen in Lisa Ann’s presentation, great to have on hand while reading the book!

Games and Activities:

  • BBC: Greek Hero game – Click on the link on the left to find the game; there is lots on this site to explore!

Crafts, Coloring and Things to Make:

And just for fun, here’s a short video featuring an animated Greek Vase:
