PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This lesson is centered around the "So What" question: "How do you decipher myth from fact?" This is an interactive PowerPoint where students will be able to "choose their own fate" by making decisions based off of a class-wide field trip they take to the ancient island of Crete. First, students participate in a flash geography/artifact review of terms we covered in the previous class (not included). Once the review is complete (first couple slides of the PowerPoint), we then move on to the interactive field trip. This is a guided notes activity (guided notes not included). Students have to make decisions based on the artifacts they find as they explore the Minoan and Mycenaean ruins. Students earn "life points" as a class, as they make their way through the Minoan and Mycenaean ruins. They often compete against other classes as to who can prevail in the Aegean with the most "life points." At the end of the interactive PowerPoint, students engage in an artifact activity where they brainstorm artifacts that may be left for our society today and compare them to Aegean society. The end of our lesson often ends with a discussion of our "So What"? How can we decipher between myth and fact when events happen centuries of us studying them?
