This is a CCSS aligned short research project designed to introduce and familiarize students to the culture and figures of Ancient Greece. This assignment also introduces students to research strategies and MLA format. This is an ideal introductory research assignment before beginning works such as "The Odyssey," "Oedipus Rex," "Antigone," and more. I've used this before in my classroom as an individual as well as a group assignment.

The project includes the student handout, a list of notable people from Ancient Greece, and a rubric.
