There are five main activities:

Introduce the Unit:
I like to start off the unit with a mystery box activity, a box that is filled with different items (mainly contributions) related to Ancient Greece. For example, I might put a medal, olives, pottery, a mask, etc. Have students guess how each of these items is related to Ancient Greece but don’t give them the answers. You can revisit the mystery box at the end of the unit after they become experts. Setting up this scene creates a natural curiosity to motivate students to want to learn all they can. That is why I’ve included a mystery envelope activity for students to do in groups instead of the whole group. Print out the Mysteries of Ancient Greece pictures on cardstock, cut into cards, laminate (if desired) and place into several envelopes, one for each group. Included are eight that are clipart and 8 with real photos depending on the age of your students. Using the Mysteries of Ancient Greece Recording Sheet, students discuss and write down their rationales, best guesses, and questions/wonderings. Then do the Ancient Greece Anticipatory Set of T/F questions to pique and build background knowledge.

Reading & Activities:
Read the informational articles about Geography, Daily Life, Food, Clothing, Houses, Religion, Athens, Sparta, Olympics, Theater, Columns, and Democracy. Have students answer the comprehension questions, organizers, and activities for each section.

Character Studies:
Create a learning station for Alexander the Great. In a folder include Meet Alexander the Great and character mini-booklet with timeline dates. Students can complete the mini-booklets by writing three facts about Alexander and cut-n-sort the timeline dates in the correct order. Then they can color, cut, and paste the mini-booklets inside their notebook or a lap book. *For the Archimedes, Hippocrates, Aristotle, and Pythagoras, I have included a shorter mini-booklet activity for students to write three facts because there are not enough dates and accurate information to do a whole timeline for them.

Vocabulary Activities:
Introduce the vocabulary words with the real-life photo posters included. You could post these posters around the classroom and have students travel around to match up and define the words in their flip flaps or use as a center activity. These posters are excellent to create an attractive bulletin board in a snap!

Tie it all Together:
Bring the students together for class discussions to check for understanding and further their critical thinking skills after each lesson. At the end of the unit come back to revisit the mystery box/envelope activity and Anticipatory Questions to check and correct their answers. There are also several other activities including a map, a timeline, mystery flaps, flipbook, quiz, brag tags, and unit reflection.
