We took notes on Chapter 11, lesson 2 with the following worksheet and using the Greeks Book and our textbook on Thursday and Friday of last week. We found out how Homer created some of the world's greatest epic poems The Iliad and The Odyssey.
TODAY, we created a page about Literature for our own Greece Book. Same formula but make sure to include the above information as well as the Greek Alphabet.
Today, we worked in groups learning about the various GOVERNMENT systems that Greek city-states had: Monarchy, Oligarchy, Tyranny, and Democracy.
We used the following handouts to fill out the worksheet.
We will create a page about Government. Don't forget to find Aristocracy in our textbook and write about that too! This page is yellow and should be pretty close to done by Thursday...
Thurs/Fri 3/30 & 3/31
Today, we did a Group Investigation about the city of Ancient Athens. We asked questions to develop our inquiry about this ancient city. We READ a handout on the city of Athens and checked our investigation. Then students did research to find more information on their inquiries about several subjects regarding Athens. Lastly, we began to do a mind map on Athenian Education, Society, Economy, and Democracy, we got half way done, and then we'll finish on Monday.
