Each patrol of girls cut out pictures from National Geographic
magazines on Greece and made a stand up display of some aspect of Greece.
One had a map showing its mountains, another showed folk costumes (the
Hellenic Society I think it is called has a web site with links to a lot
of Greek folk culture), and they learned a few words in Greek.

Ask the parents for help on Greek items. It will be a
Greek museum on your tabletop. Anybody you know own a balalaika? native
Greek costumes? Do you have a Greek Orthodox church in your community?
Contact them and ask for constructive suggestions in making your presentation.
How about the classics dept. at the university? Thrift shops are great
for locating old National Geographics with a Greek map. Perhaps a Greek
cloth can cover the table, too.
Don't forget the empty bottle of ouzo, and of course a basket overflowing
with grapes. (A nice snack for folks passing by, too.)
Also, clearly display the Greek alphabet (alpha, beta, gamma, etc.).
Perhaps make a poster of mathematical equations?????
Mention the Greek philosophers... Aristotle, Plato, etc.
Maybe a travel agent can give you pictures of places or cities, or try
the public library.
