This too was a short reading and my students learned more interesting facts on Greece achievements. The only part of this worksheet that completely confused the kids was the "Golden Section" I had to explain and find other examples to help them understand this concept. Drove me nuts after teaching it 6 times in one day. Over all I liked the additional information that both I and II worksheets provided my students.
