Scavenger Hunt Success

Did you know that vending machines were invented by the Ancient Greeks?  The Greek mathematician Hero of Alexandria developed a machine that dispensed holy water when a coin was inserted.   It is said that Plato invented the alarm clock and that Aeschylus is responsible for our system of trial by juryWhat do Ajax, Midas, Nike, Oracle, and Pandora have in common?   They are all products or companies named for characters in Greek mythology.  These are just a few of the interesting discoveries we made as we hunted in our modern lives for evidence of the legacy of Ancient Greece. 

Can you add any items to our list of legacies of Ancient Greece?

    • Hi Josh!
      Alicia will be so glad to get your comment as well. We lost our Internet service at school today, so we were unable to do any blogging this morning or afternoon. Congratulations on almost getting the layout of the room correct. That was a fun assignment. We would love to collaborate with you sometime. Have a great day in school, and we’ll “see” you soon!
