This term we are looking forward to exploring the Ancient Greeks!                      

Do you know any interesting facts already?

Are you brave enough to jump in the time machine and travel way back to learn about the hellenes (the name greeks called themselves) and their hellas (their land)? Greece has been inhabited, for roughly, the last 40,000 years with its original settlers known for their skills as hunter-gatherers and farming. 

Where did the ancient Greeks live?

Prepare to locate and explore their ancient Mediterranean lands where their colonies lived using maps. Sail the seas to find out how they traded and found new lands to advance their economy and begin to lead lives that are similar in ways that we live today. 

Who was their ruler? 

Research the powers of ancient Greece and their Macedonian leader, Alexander The Great, who led his army to conquer far away lands such as India. Also, learn about how Greece was governed and divided into smaller areas known as "city-states". 

Get ready to delve into an ancient world or warriors, gods, architects, writers, politicians and much more!
