Product Description
OBJECTIVE:
To summarize the achievements of Greek civilization during the Golden Age of Athens.

TIME:
1 class period

After reading a brief introduction about the Golden Age of Athens, students review a chart that summarizes the following accomplishments made during this time in history.

• Philosophy
• Science and Mathematics
• Medicine
• Government
• Literature
• Architecture and Sculpture

Information from the chart is used later in the period during the playing of “The Olympic Games.” The class is divided into five teams which will represent the five city-states of Sparta, Athens, Corinth, Thebes, and Megara. Each city-state will compete in the ancient Olympic Games.

The games begin with the long jump. A question is asked about the Golden Age of Athens. The first person in class to raise their hand is called on. If their answer is correct, they win the “bronze medal” (symbolic of third place) in the long jump, and the team gets 4 points. More questions will then be asked as teams compete in the same way for second place (“silver medal” and 7 points) in the long jump, and first place (“gold medal” and 10 points) in the long jump.

Competition continues in the same way with other events. Questions on the fourth lesson page are used by the teacher to play the game. These can be handed out afterwards as a review sheet

Complete game rules are provided on the lesson pages.

Easy-to-follow Teacher Instructions and answer key included, along with a 20-question follow up quiz to measure student progress. The quiz can also be given as a homework assignment or used as a review exercise later in the school year.
