Product Description
This lesson focuses on how the Persian Wars lead to the rise of Athens as a power (entered a golden age) and how the Peloponnesian War lead to the downfall of Athens with the plague.

It includes review notes, main ideas explained in detail as well as fast facts to provide students with different ways to absorb the information, and sum it up as well as discussion questions for students to answer (with an answer key provided).

Additionally, an extension activity is included that asks students to read a primary source called "The Funeral Oration of Pericles" and answer critical thinking questions based on the information. This speech was made by the Athenian leader Pericles in honor of those who died fighting Sparta in the first year of the Peloponnesian War and it's one of the most famous defenses of democracy of all time.
