Ancient Greece. Ancient Greek Olympics. Hands-on learning. Ancient Greece Games. Active learning. Interactive learning. Ancient Greece Stations. History games.
These are 8 HANDS-ON games to teach the Ancient Greek Olympics. This is THE favorite lesson of my students of all the lessons that I teach my students. The games teach about how the events happened back in Ancient Greek times. This is a GREAT way to have parents come in and help in your classroom too! I split students into groups of 7 or 8 students. I use this with middle school students, but this could be adapted for ANY grade!
Included in this bundle is:
1) Background information to share with the students about the Ancient Greek Olympics.
2) Rules about the games.
3) 8 Games to teach students about 8 different events in Ancient Greece. The events have a description of how they looked in Ancient Greece.
4) A fill-in sheet for students to write descriptions of the different events as they learn about them.
5) Awards for students who win their event.
The events included in this product are:
The chariot race, the horse race, wrestling, boxing, pankration, stade race, long jump, and the discus throw.
Students LOVE this as it gets them actively learning about Ancient Greece, and they can compete with other students. I hope that you love this product!
