Ancient Greek Influences:
All About Ancient Greek Influences on the United States ( Government, Architecture, and the Olympics)
Let your students show what they've learned about their studies of Greece and the political roots of our democracy by using this 8.5 x 11 poster. This poster will look great hanging outside your classroom, and parents will enjoy reading them when they are sent home.
I have marked this poster for grades 3-5, but please read the topics below to help you decide if it will work for you.
Grab your media specialist, check books out from the library to have in class, use your social studies book, watch videos, go to the computer lab, etc. Use whatever resources you would like to have students fill in the information.
NOTE: Don't forget to check my store for a HUGE variety of poster activities..... get one for all the holidays and other topics, too.
The Ancient Greek Influences poster activity has plenty of places for students to add their own creative touches with color.
The sections for the students to fill out as a writing activity are:
*Place for their name
* Explain the difference between a direct democracy from Athens and a representative democracy of the U.S.
*How does the present day Olympics compare to the ancient Greek Olympics?
*Color the map of Greece
*What styles in architecture used today came from Ancient Greece?
*Glue or illustrate an example picture of a U.S. government building using architecture from ancient Greece. Name the building
Use as a center activity, homework project, partner activity, etc. Use it in your classroom however you would like.
