This is one of my favorite Social Studies units! In this unit, students will learn about life in four of the major city-states of Ancient Greece. The city-states they will learn about are Athens, Megara, Corinth, and Sparta.
In this unit, groups will design a city-state flag, and become olympic athletes for his/her city-state where they participate in Olympic events such as "box"ing (not real boxing :), discus throw, javelins, marathon (26 laps in gym), "pen"tathlon, hoop shoot, etc.
This unit is a 5 day unit with detailed instructions for EVERYTHING so that your olympic event goes off without a hitch.
This is something your students will remember forever!
