"In this talk, kids will learn about what life was like for children just like them thousands of years ago. They will learn about kids in Ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, Greece, and Rome. Toys, games, houses, and schooling methods are used as examples to demonstrate how similar children are in all four of those ancient countries, and how similar they are to children today.
