We all had home groups, where each of us chose a Greek area to become an expert in - architecture, homes, politics, sport and Language. Then we worked in our 'Expert' groups and collated as much information as we could and then informed our original groups of all we had discovered. Great fun! After this, we created non-chronological reports all about Ancient Greece.
