The Daily Athenian, newspaper project

Life in the City-States of Ancient Greece

Imagine you are a famous architect and you have just discovered the ruins of an ancient Greek home. Go through each room, carefully piecing together the clues.  One way to use this interesting lesson idea is the have your kids work in groups. Each group is assigned a room. The group creates pieces (clues) that the other students use to discover daily life arranged by stations. Allow students to explore each station and create a list of "discoveries". Then open class discussion. 

Trading Market Simulation, barter in ancient Greece. Optional use: Students can create products that would be needed in ancient Greek daily life to barter. This can be as simple as a word or a quick drawing.
