Studying ancient Greece
As you introduce the history of ancient Greece to your students, it is helpful for them to look at key geographical features that contributed to their lives.
The mountains created barriers which offered protections but also made trading and farming difficult. The seas were able to provide natural resources but also could be dangerous.
I found that using a map towards the beginning of our study has helped their understanding of events we study.
I am finding that my students this year are struggling with remembering correct use of capital letters. I am often finding capital letters in the middle of the words and then no capitals in names. I am trying to provide practice with these skills while also working on other areas. This map activity provided this opportunity for my students.
To label their maps, students had to research and work together. This activity involved more than simply copying and labeling a map.
The following are on the list for students to find and label on their maps.
- Mount Oympus
- Pindus Mountains
- Peloponnese Mountains
- Aegean Sea
- Mediterranean Sea
- Sea of Create
- Sea of Marmara
As an extension, you can encourage students to determine what is missing from their maps. They can make a list of cities, areas, and other features they believe should be added. Students can then add these to their maps.
