Book Description

With this volume, Andi Stix and Frank Hrbek thoughtfully guide teachers through three distinct topics: Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome. It features expansive, multi-dimensional learning tools to support classroom teaching: students can hunt for archaeological clues in a simulated museum, compete in a Spartan survival test, become acquainted with myths and legends, design Greek architecture and pottery, re-create Roman mosaic patterns, and more!

The volume brings materials from across this period of history to life by stimulating and cultivating students’ imaginations.

The series Walking Through History presents student-centered, hands-on activities, active simulations, debates, and discussions, which provide an unparalleled engaging learning experience. Its objective is for students to walk in another’s shoes through lessons based on a particular historical period. Field-tested and proven teaching strategies for virtual and in-person classrooms are highlighted across the series. These books are specifically designed to be used with whiteboard and other interactive tools.
