PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A lesson about the Persian Empire: location, history, strengths and weaknesses.

Who were the Persians? Where was their empire? Why did they want to conquer Greece?

Ancient Greece versus the Persian Empire. Everyone expected Persia to dominate--Win the war--Add Greece to its expanding empire--What happened? How did the underdog vanquish the mighty Persian army?

The Persian Empire is the first section in my presentation on the Persian Wars. It sets up the background for the coming wars with Greece. This presentation covers the founding of the Persian Empire, its rulers and accomplishments from 576 B.C. to 490 B.C. This is a fantastic opportunity to introduce your students to the Persians before you teach about the Persian Wars. The Persian Empire, or Achaemenid Empire was founded by Cyrus the Great in 576 BC. This empire became the biggest empire of its day. Its kingdom encompassed the Indus River Valley, Egypt, and Asia Minor. What were the secrets of its strength? How did it rule such a vast empire without the aid of modern technology? This presentation addresses those issues.
