Researching real people and events helps students to gain a more concrete understanding of the culture, lives and diverse perspectives of people who lived in Ancient times. Giving students the perspective of those who lived during a time period helps them go beyond simply memorizing dates and names to acquire a more substantial, empathetic and realistic view of the period. In this activity, students will create a biography poster about a famous or significant figure or event in Ancient Greece.
Teachers can assign students a specific person or an event or they may give students a choice. Teachers may wish to provide resources such as books or an online encyclopedia for students to read about their person or event.
These posters can be printed out, laminated and hung around the room as a visual reminder of notable people and events from the time of Ancient Greece. Students can also present their posters to their classmates, sharing their knowledge about their person. Thus combining research, writing and public speaking skills into one powerful assignment
