This printable contains everything you need to introduce the fascinating Persian wars to your student, including the Battle of Marathon and the Battle of Thermopylae.
The students can independently (or in small groups) read the informative text and answer the comprehension questions. This is a simple, effective way to introduce the basics of these wars to your students. Perfect to compliment any unit on Ancient Greece.
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.
