One of the most fun things about studying history with My Father’s World curriculum is getting to find living books and extra activities to pair with the time period studied! I think anything we can do to bring a time period to life will help kids remember what they’ve learned. Listed below are several different extras for My Father’s World Creation to the Greeks. The ones starred are the ones we used personally!

Living Books for My Father’s World Creation to the Greeks
This story was so sweet and my kids just loved it! It also gave us a look at the Jewish feasts.
This book was excellent! I highly recommend it when learning about Moses and the plagues.
This book is a follow-up to A Cry from Egypt. It looks really good, but we didn’t read it because of time.
I loved this story. I actually purchased the audiobook from Simply Charlotte Mason and we listened to it in the van.
I purchased this book and it looks really good, but we didn’t get to read it because we ran out of time. I might read it to the kids this summer.
This living book is highly recommended when studying Ancient Greece.
The Children’s Homer included in the curriculum can be a bit hard to understand for some students. This series makes it easier!
*Life in the Great Ice Age
I found our copy on Thriftbooks.com and really enjoyed reading this to the kids at the very beginning of our year.

Games and Activities for MFW CTG
This game is highly recommended in the MFW CTG Facebook group to learn the Greek and Latin roots. I haven’t purchased because the price is a bit too steep for me, but if you can find it cheaper it sounds like it’s worth it.
My kids LOVE puzzles. I just ordered the Ancient Greece puzzle since we are just beginning our study.
These trivia cards have been highly recommended. I have placed these on order, too, because we can also use them next year.
If you like kids who like to chisel away and dig, this looks fun!
Write hieroglyphics on papyrus paper with this activity!
Educational Extras (Maps,Videos, Etc.) for My Father’s World Creation to the Greeks
I purchased this Book of Centuries for each of my kids to keep track of their timelines. I just don’t have the wall space for a timeline.
These free YouTube videos help bring the Old Testament stories to life.
We also use these in lieu of creating our own notebooking pages. The kids get drawing practice and copywork!
This book will be used both this year and next.
Cool pictures from Simply Charlotte Mason to bring your story to life.
This is the Greek set from Simply Charlotte Mason.
Highly recommended by homeschool moms to help bring history to life for your kids.
Cat of Bubastes Audiodrama
I wanted to create something tangible to help reinforce what the kids learned about Ancient Egypt. This inexpensive printable lapbook was completed in one day.
For our study of Ancient Greece I purchased these history pockets. The material went along really well with what we were studying in CTG.
This is a super cool map set that would be used this year and next!
Notebooking Printables for MFW CTG
All of the resources below are free.
I printed our current Bible verse and hung it up on the wall. I also printed the copy work for each verse and had my kids complete those papers when copying and memorizing the Scripture.
*Greek Roots Printables – In the files section of the Facebook group MFW CTG.
We used these Greek roots printables rather than the index cards that MFW suggests. My kids had a section in their notebooks just for their Greek roots.
*MFW Coloring Page Printables – In the files section of the Facebook group MFW CTG.
The teacher’s manual directs you to create several of your own notebooking pages. This printable file made that easy! I just printed off the the notebooking page we needed, had the kids write their own summary, and placed it in their binders.
