This 4-page printable contains everything you need to introduce the Trojan War to your students.
The lesson starts with a brief introduction to who the discovery of the ancient city, and also includes a few key images for students to view, including a map of Troy, a current archeological photo, a classical painting depicting the war, and a photo of an ancient Iliad manuscript.
After reading the informative text, students can independently (or in small groups) answer the comprehension questions and complete the matching section.
In small groups or as a class, the students can then engage in three discussion questions, which pull from the text and allow for debate, as well as give opportunities for students to defend their answers and share their opinions.
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.
