PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

My best-selling product on the ancient Greeks! And here is why: It's a remarkably simple plan to use. No preliminary planning, no preliminary or background knowledge necessary for the social studies students.....just a fun one-period activity where you divide your class into four Greek city-states (Athens, Sparta, Corinth, Thebes) and turn them loose as a group to solve twelve very difficult language/math puzzles that all have an ancient Greek connection built into them. Use this activity this year and then save the file to print and use every year in the future with your class; they will love it! Answer key is provided of course.

Looking for more than just one activity on Ancient Greece? How about 11 different exciting teaching activities at a reduced price in one great package? There is an artistic activity, a fun group challenge, four cross-curricular math, science, and language arts activities, four history and mythology printables, and a set of four extra-credit printables for advanced learners. Take a look!

I almost didn't purchase this because I didn't think my students could do this activity ( too hard). I am glad I did purchase it. Even though their reading levels are low and they struggled with the reading they enjoyed it!

My 6th graders had trouble with a lot of it, but it was good to throw a challenge at them.
On  March 18, 2013Mark Aaron answered:
Thank you for your feedback. Students are supposed to have trouble with it and find it very challenging, but I begin by teling them that it is highly unlikely they will solve even half of the puzzles. This seems to put them at ease. I have never had a class "give up" on these puzzles though!
