This activity will allow students to create their own model of an ancient Greek city-state/polis. Instructions: Using the picture on the back of this page, notes, the internet and the books in class, students will be drawing a model of a Greek city-state in the box below or blank sheet of paper/poster board.
1) In Greek tradition, students will NAME their polis (ex. Student name plus –polis = Bobopolis!)
2) Next, students will find, draw/color and label the following buildings and/or features: ACROPOLIS, AGORA, PORT, CITY WALLS, PARTHENON (TEMPLE), THEATER, STADIUM, FARMS, HOMES.
3) Then, in a small box next to each item, they will briefly describe what that building/feature was used for in the city-state.
4) Lastly, in the box provided, students will be able to draw a customized symbol for your city-state (they can look up “Greek city-state symbols” on Google for examples, or use other types of media to locate them.)
5) Project must be colored, detailed and labeled to show understanding of the parts of a city-state (parts not listed can also be added!)
