PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Before Alexander the Great, before the Peloponnesian War, the city-states of Greece united to fight off the world's mightiest empire; and they won!

The Persian Wars is a 186 slide power point presentation on the battle strategies used by the Greeks and the Persians during the the 4th century BC.

This presentation focuses on the battle strategies, technology, terrain, and goals of the Persians and Greeks. Graphic Organizers are used to clarify and organize the information. Lots of pictures, illustrations, and maps are included in every section. Throughout the presentation are discussions paired with writing activities. I have been successfully using this presentation with my 6th graders for the last seven years, however the content would be appropriate up through high school.


*This product includes my presentations on: The Persian Empire and the Academic Vocabulary for the Persian Wars.*
