This unit is based on the exploits and interactions of Ancient Greek Heroes. There are a number of activities and worksheets in the unit that will require the students to practice various skills.
There are stories about heroes and events that show heroism. Hercules, the events of the Trojan War, Alexander the Great and Aristotle are discussed in the unit and questions are asked that need to be answered by the students. Other activities included poetry and poetry appreciation, research, discussion questions, vocabulary, drawing, mapping, quizzes, Greek architecture, the gods and Teaching notes.
I try to write my various thematic units so that they can be used with a class without the teacher having to complete too much preparation. So much of our time is taken up with this, mentoring, grading etc.
However, in all of my thematic units, I have tried to allow for the creativity of the teacher and the individuality of different classes. Something might work with one class but another class embraces the idea. I look at my activities and I go in one direction but I also want you to try other avenues of presenting the information I have provided.
