PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students will be introduced to the four main philosophers of ancient Greece (Sophocles, Socrates, Plato and Aristotle). Students will critically examine two notable quotations from each philosopher, asking what they felt the message of each idea meant. Next, students will write and share whether they agree with each of the philosophical thoughts. Lastly, students will read an article from a fictional newspaper that details the trial and ultimate death of Socrates.

Really loved the idea and I loved that it made my 6th graders actually THINK! Unfortunately the text/images did not open in the correct position on the worksheet and fixing it myself was too time consuming. Again, I did love the activity though.

I am having trouble getting my document to print correctly. It is missing a lot of the features such as the pictures and text boxes for answers. What am I doing wrong? I have Microsoft Word.

Hey...Im not sure. No one has ever made that comment. Nothing is missing on my version. If you want, give me your email and tomorrow I can send you the same copy. Maybe it will download differently. Are you using a mac?
On  January 30, 2013Diana Bradbury (TpT Seller) asked:
Hi Travelling Teacher. I'm not asking a question but I noticed a glaring spelling mistake in your work. You have consistently used "to" instead of "two" in the summary and the preview page. This might sell better without the mistake.
