Ancient Greece Activities

Activity 1
Using the information, take on the persona of an individual during the period of time. Use 5 - 10 images with captions to create a scrapbook to show the class (in PowerPoint). NO BULLET POINTS! Know your story well enough to give your class an explanation "off the top of your head".

Activity 2
Find examples of modern day that have the influence of Ancient Greece. For example, find buildings that reflect Greek Architecture. Use 5 - 10 images with captions to create a digital "poster" to show the class (in PowerPoint). NO BULLET POINTS! Know your story well enough to give your class an explanation "off the top of your head".

Activity 3
Pretend you are an a head soldier (is that what they called it?) and making a presentation to your troops about the Persian War. Give us information about why we're fighting, where we're headed and the (expected) outcome from the perspective of one of the men in battle.
