PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Ancient Greece Classroom Olympics by Miss Middle School Teacher

This is a fun and entertaining way to help students understand the competitive spirit and athleticism that were such a part of ancient Greek culture. I use this after students learn about the Greek city-states and their contributions, and after a lesson on the ancient Greek Olympic games.

Students become a member of an ancient Greek polis (city-state) and work in groups or 4-5 to compete against other teams. The poleis are Megara, Athens, Sparta, Corinth, and Argos.

The events are similar to Minute-To-Win-It type challenges and can be completed within the classroom. All you need are some ping pong balls, an ice cream bucket, a stop watch, some tape, and a few items that can easily be found laying around a classroom. My students LOVE this!

I've included activity pages for events that need them, event information for the class and teacher to go over together, teacher instructions and keys, a scoring page, signs to represent each polis, modern day Greek flag to display, and 1st/2nd/3rd place medals to copy/put on a string for winning groups. Enjoy!
