This 3-page printable contains everything you need to introduce Heinrich Schliemann, the archeologist, and his discovery of the ancient city of Troy to your students!
The lesson starts with a brief introduction to who Heinrich Schliemann was, and also includes a few key images for students to view, including a map of Troy, a close-up of the archeological site, a photograph of Heinrich Schliemann, and a drawing of the Trojan Horse.
After reading the informative text, tudents can independently answer the comprehension questions.
Then, students can meet in small groups (or meet as a class) to answer the group discussion questions. These questions are fairly open-ended, and allow for enjoyable discussion and feedback.
I hope you enjoy this printable. It can be used across a variety of grade levels, and can be used as a group or independent activity.
