gamma, delta, epsilon…
do all those words have in common? They’re
all part of the Greek alphabet! The Greek
alphabet is comprised of 24

English alphabet that we all learned in kindergarten was greatly
the Greek alphabet.
Have you ever
wondered why it’s called the “alphabet”? Because
the first two letters in the Greek alphabet
are “alpha” and
Each letter has a
different symbol. Some of the symbols
look very familiar! That’s because
whoever created the English alphabet borrowed some symbols from the
Greeks. Are you eager to find out the

the right place!
For a little
