My friend was able to obtain several enormous boxes from a local store which the kids enjoyed turning into Ancient Greek Temples.
Temple of Athena Nike, so they worked together. When they drew their Ionic columns they learned about the three different styles (Doric, Ionic and Corinthian) of columns. Then they drew small pictures all around the top of the temples. These are the friezes which were carving around the tops of temples that often told the stories of Greek myths.
