In Ancient Greece, the Agora was a bustling marketplace. Open-air stalls, or tents, where people could buy food and other goods, lined the marketplace. Artisans and craftsmen would set up tables on which to sell their goods.
This assignment is a creative, fun way to bring the Agora to life for students, parents, and teachers. It allows for students to express their creativity while learning about this important part of ancient history. This lesson works well with any unit of study on Ancient Greece, but was created with the Core Knowledge sequence in mind.
This product includes teacher directions, student examples, and student handouts. We recommend that teachers provide 2 file folders and a small envelope and that students provide the materials for the crafts/items they make to sell at the Agora.
