This video guide is for The History Channel's popular Greece: Engineering an Empire documentary video (individual episodes are available on YouTube, or DVDs can be purchased from the History Channel). The guide is divided into five sections which covers the major historical, cultural, and historic events of this amazing civilization that became the "Cradle of Western Civilization". There are a total of 20 narrative questions with fill in the blank answers that span the 45 minute video. The narrative question format is designed to focus and engage the students throughout the video, and to allow for followup discussion. Included is a teachers key with answers and time codes for starting and stopping the video at each of the major sections. This is an excellent activity to introduce Ancient Greece, or can be effectively integrated throughout the unit as needed.
