Ancient Greece Free Lesson Plans and Classroom Activities for Teachers

Free Lesson Plans, Classroom Activities, Projects:  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 in 6th grade, we opened each day's lesson with one quick Aesop fable to keep them on track. The projects and activities can be adjusted for any grade, but are designed for middle school, and 5th through 10th grade. The study of ancient cultures is such a fun year. We wish you the very best year ever!
