In this highly-engaging Alexander the Great activity, students analyze the life and times of Alexander the Great to answer the question: "is a hero or a villain?"
Students begin by examining song lyrics of a popular song to understand his role in history, then to a map analysis, and finally to four documents that paint an interesting picture of the man Alexander the Great.
As a culminating project, students take a side - was Alexander the Great a hero or a villain? Students complete the appropriate poster (included) to demonstrate their learning!
This resource includes a paper in-class version and a 1:1 Google compatible version to be used in conjunction with Google Classroom.

This will allow students to type directly into the document!
Tons of fun!
