Ancient Greece Lesson Plans for Teachers


Lesson Plans & Classroom Activities:  Since we look at many ancient cultures during the same school year, kids can actually forget what culture they are studying while they are studying it. For Ancient Greece, we opened each day's lesson with one quick Aesop fable to keep them on track. The study of ancient cultures is such a fun year. We wish you the very best year ever!
