    Lesson 1 : The Minoan and Mycenaean Civilizations

    This free lesson is added to the bundle for convenience.

    The Minoan and Mycenaean civilizations existed in a time that the Greeks called the heroic age, a time when Achilles fought Hector and when Heracles completed his twelve labours. In reality it was Bronze Age Greece and these two civilizations would lay the foundation for what would become Ancient Greece.

    Topics covered in this lesson include:

    ♦ Geography of Greece and the Aegean

    ♦ The development of Minoan civilization

    ♦ Linear A

    ♦ Minoan art

    ♦ Women in Minoan civilization

    ♦ Decline of the Minoans

    ♦ The development of Mycenaean civilization

    ♦ Linear B

    ♦ Mycenaeans warriors

    ♦ Collapse of the Mycenaean civilization

    ♦ The Greek Dark Ages

    Lesson 2: Greek Mythology

    The mythology of the Greeks was not just stories to guide their lives - they considered it their very history. Today, they provide us with some of the most compelling stories from our ancient past.

    Topics covered in this presentation include:

    ♦ The Impact of Mythology on Greek Society

    ♦ The Legend of the Trojan War

    ♦ Homer

    ♦ The Gods and Goddesses

    ♦ Greek Heroes

    ♦ Greek Religious Customs

    ♦ Sanctuaries, Temples, and Oracles

    ♦ The Parthenon

    ♦ Religion as a Cultural Unifier

    Lesson 3: Birth of Democracy in Athens

    Greece is the birthplace of democracy and the story of that development is fascinating. Seen as more than just a right by the citizens of Athens, it was a duty and it was something they were willing to die for.

    This lesson covers the following topics:

    ♦ Early Government in Greece

    ♦ The influence of Greek Hoplites on government

    ♦ Draco and Athens' Code of Law

    ♦ Solon and the council of 400

    ♦ Pisistratus and Hippias

    ♦ Isagoras and the Spartan Invasion

    ♦ Cleisthenes and the birth of democracy

    ♦ Ostracism

    Lesson 4: Sparta

    The Greek city-state Sparta was one of the harshest and most militant societies in history. Despite a relatively small population, this society dominated the Greek peninsula for centuries. This presentation, which includes links to youtube, examines how that society rose to become the military power house of Ancient Greece.

    Topics covered in this presentation include:

    ♦ Spartan Government

    ♦ Reforms of Lycurgus

    ♦ Education

    ♦ Spartan Army

    ♦ Spartan Weapons

    ♦ Role of Spartan Women

    ♦ Famous Spartan Quotes

    Lesson 5: Greco-Persian War

    At the beginning of the 5th century BCE, the small, independent city-states of Greece were in danger of being swallowed up by the massive Persian Empire. Had the Greeks not successfully defended their freedom at this critical point in the development of their culture, it is difficult to imagine how different the history of the western world would have been.

    Topics covered in this presentation include:

    ♦ Bronze Age Collapse

    ♦ Rise of Persia

    ♦ Ionian Revolts

    ♦ Battle of Marathon

    ♦ Xerxes I

    ♦ Crossing of the Hellespont

    ♦ Themistocles and the Athenian Navy

    ♦ Leonidas and the 300 Spartans

    ♦ Battle of Thermopylae

    ♦ Burning of Athens

    ♦ Battle of Salamis

    ♦ Battle of Plataea

    ♦ Significance of the Greek Victory

    Lesson 6: The Golden Age of Athens and the Peloponnesian War

    For a brief shining moment in history the cultural heart of the Western World was Athens. From this city, democracy, philosophy, culture, and the arts were the centre of this society. This all came to a violent end when war erupted with Athen's eternal rival Sparta.

    Topics covered in this presentation include:

    ♦ The Delian League

    ♦ Athens as a beacon for the Arts

    ♦ Philosophy and Socrates

    ♦ Pericles

    ♦ The Acropolis and the Parthenon

    ♦ The Peloponnesian League

    ♦ The Peloponnesian War

    ♦ Aftermath of the War

    ♦ The Rise of Macedonia

    Lesson 7: Alexander the Great and the Hellenistic World

    Alexander Great is an individual who had a tremendous impact on the world. His stunning military achievements and opening up Europe to a much greater world would change the course of human history. The blending of cultures begun by his invasion of Asia would enrich the Western World for centuries to come.

    Topics covered in this presentation include:

    ♦ Macedonia

    ♦ Philip the Great

    ♦ Alexander becoming King

    ♦ Invasion of Asia

    ♦ Alexander in Egypt

    ♦ Gaugamela

    ♦ Central Asia and India

    ♦ Discontent in the Army

    ♦ Death of Alexander

    ♦ Breakup of the Empire

    ♦ The Hellenistic World

    Two versions of each lesson!

    The first is a Presentation - PowerPoint/Google Slides - for those teachers who know the topic and want to guide their students through the material. There are links to Youtube and Vimeo in the presentations. Links are checked weekly and updated when necessary. There are handouts for note taking along with reflection questions included with this presentation.

    The second version consists of the information and images on worksheets that the students can read through at their own pace. This is best done if laptops or tablets are available for the class or for online learning. This version comes with more indepth questions that the students can work through at their own pace.
