Description

Covering ancient people of the world?

This product covers an introduction to the Phoenicians and their contributions to the world. Did you know that the Phoenicians were the first known sea traders or that they invented an alphabet that was passed along to the cultures they met? Did you know that they invented a purple dye that became very desired by rulers and the very wealthy? It is said that the Emperor Nero passed a law that only HE could wear the unique color.The resource includes notes as well as extension activities and links to help you teach your students about the first known sea traders in history. I also have included several comprehension questions, too. Depending on how many activities you'd like to do, the mini unit could take 2-3 days.

NOTE: I also have a bundle of resources on the Phoenicians: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Phoenicians-A-Bundle-of-Resources-4028719?st=370b58a922e3c950c9bd27e09c764726

NEW 2021:(Not in the bundle at this time) If you are studying the Phoenicians, this webquest will be a positive addition as an introduction/review to the first sea traders of the ancient world. The Phoenicians developed an alphabet which they shared to other cultures in their travels around the Mediterranean Sea. They developed the color purple and were skilled in glassmaking. Their sea traders may have traveled as far as Britain and down the coast of Africa, in a time when there were no navigational tools. https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Phoenicians-A-Webquest-7251150
