This worksheet very simply lays out the difference between Plato and Aristotle’s basic philosophy. Throughout history, most of the major thinkers and players have fallen into one of these categories. I teach it with Classical Greece, but throughout my world history course, when we study anybody, I always ask the question, “Is this like Plato or Aristotle?”

This is a great activity to use in a world history, current events, philosophy, or ELA course (I used it with The Faerie Queen).
