How to make greek dioramas for school

Giving a report on Ancient Greece can be uninteresting and dry if you do not provide the classroom audience with something to look at as you talk. One solution is to make a detailed diorama related to Ancient Greece that complements your report. You can set your diorama on a desktop in front of you as you speak to the class.

  1. 1

    Paint the inside of a shoebox with acrylic paint. Paint half of the box blue for the sky and half of the box olive green and tan for the landscape.

  2. 2

    Press air-drying clay onto the landscape side of the box, forming hills and valleys.

  3. 3

    Allow the clay to dry completely.

  4. 4

    Paint the clay to match the colour of the landscape. Allow the paint to dry.

  5. 5

    Cover the clay with craft glue.

  6. 6

    Sprinkle sand over the glued area, and place a few pieces of moss onto various areas. Allow the glue to dry. Set the box aside. The Greek countryside is dry and drab in colour, covered with scrub and brush.

  7. 7

    Mix 1 cup of flour, 1/2 cup salt and 1/2 cup water in a bowl.

  8. 8

    Using the rolling pin, form the dough into small dwellings that will fit into the landscape in the diorama. Let the dough dry completely. Ancient Greek dwellings were constructed of stone and clay.

  9. 9

    Glue the dwellings onto the Greek countryside. Allow the glue to dry completely before displaying the Greek diorama.
