Hi Leah... I usually do project folders for Ancient Greece...Any classwork or activities we do is put into a construction paper folder that has been decorated with the child's name in the Greek Alphabet. I do cinquain poems about the Greek Gods, Democracy and voting activities, and a reading Olympics Competition! This works well because I am also their ELA teacher. There are a few others things in their as well, mostly activities I got from the Teacher Created Materials Ancient Greece unit. I then collect the folders at the end of the unit and use a rubric/checklist to give them a grade. I would love some fresh ideas to though! Let us know if you find anything else.
I have had a Greek Game project were the students look up information and they make a game board out of it. They have to make 50 questions. Along the way I check how far they are and give them extra points if they stay on task.
