Ancient Greek Food (Tasting)

Ancient Greek Food (Tasting)

An introduction to the diet of the ancient Greeks by tasting! This resource can be used at the start of a learning journey on Ancient Greece, to engage, or at the end. I have also used it the day before a ‘Fabulous Finish’ (Ancient Greek Day) where the children dressed in costumes, designed their own Greek pottery and carved in clay, held a mini Olympic games tournament and then marched into a feast, giving due honour to Zeus before eating. It worked well in this manner, because the children were already aware of the types of foods they would be sampling and why. The resource set includes: Presentation on the diet of the Ancient Greeks. A printable Menu - edit on the ppt to include the food you have bought Slides to show what foods are going to be sampled A printout where children can rate the food, based on its appearance and texture and taste etc. (Print from ppt) A suggested follow up task - where children design their own menus, of Ancient Greek style food, using effusive persuasive language. All the food types included, are easy to source, and I found Aldi/Lidl extremely good value for 60 pupils. Most children gagged on the anchovies, but it was part of the fun - they all loved the goats cheese/greek yoghurt squeezy honey combo (and some were eating the honey simply on its own!) I hope you enjoy using this resource.

The Later Achievements of Theseus

The Later Achievements of Theseus

The lesson starts with a task aimed at getting students to recall what they already know about Theseus through the study of his labours. Next the lesson focuses on the three versions of the Ariadne myth with a set of questions designed to look at the myth from their own perspective, but also through the eyes of an ancient Athenian. After this students are introduced to Theseus’ significance as king of Athens and then are presented with an extract from Plutarch’s Life of Theseus and asked 5 questions (can be printed as a handout) designed to get students thinking more deeply about primary sources in Classical Civilisation. Finally they need to consider why Plutarch decided to parallel Theseus to Romulus, even though their roles in terms of founding their respective cities are different. Students then read through the relevant parts of Euripides’ Heracles (included) and are asked 3 questions to answer for each part. Students can be assigned a different character and the relevant part of the play for students is split into six- From when Heracles learns he has murdered his wife and children, to the end of the play. This allows the play to be accessible and a chance for the teacher to address any misunderstandings or misconceptions. Obviously there is a focus on Theseus despite the name of the play, since it is Theseus who proves the greater man at the end of the play. 1 and 2 mark questions then follow based on their learning in the unit so far and finally there is an 8 mark comparative exam question. Students can recall their prior knowledge of Heracles’ association with Olympia from earlier in the course, and compare it to Theseus’ association with Athens. There is an extension task added on which involves students imagining they are at Theseus’ public funeral and writing an appropriate eulogy for him. This is designed for students to summarise their knowledge of Theseus’ life and demonstrate their ability to highlight the most significant moments.

The Labours of Theseus

The Labours of Theseus

The lesson starts by asking students what the lesson might be about based on a set of abstract images. It assumes some prior knowledge about the basics of Theseus’s life e.g. How he was born and who he was. Included in the powerpoint which can be printed A3 or A4 is a worksheet which students can fill in with information about each of Theseus’ labours as you go through them on the board. Students are introduced to the kylix depicting the labours of Theseus housed in the British Museum. As a prescribed source for the GCSE, it is crucial that students know which labour is depicted where on the kylix itself. This powerpoint provides rotated and enlarged versions of each depiction at the appropriate points in the lesson. This ensures that students are constantly thinking not only about Theseus’ labours, but also how they are depicted on the kylix at all times. All the information students need to know about each of Theseus’ labours for the new Classical Civilisation OCR 9-1 GCSE is included. Having already studied Heracles earlier on in the course. There are questions to prompt comparisons with Theseus’ contemporary hero – in particular in the labours that they undertake and the way in which they go about doing them. This comparative thinking will help with the exam question at the end of the lesson. There is a link to a short animation (appropriate for all ages) included to his final labour: the defeat of the Minotaur which students can use to enhance their understanding of this story. The kylix is then referred back to as students are asked to contemplate how appropriate each depiction on the kylix is based on what they know about their labour, followed by a ranking and justification task. Finally, an 8 mark comparison question is included. It is designed to take them 8 minutes as per the timings on the paper at GSCE, and as a support there are sentence starters and helpful tips available to those that might need it. An extension task is also included which encourages the comparison with Heracles.

Ancient Greece: Democracy and Ostracism

Ancient Greece: Democracy and Ostracism

Planned for my Y4/5 class, goes into Ancient Greek democracy and ostracism. Contains ppt, worksheets and supporting resources. It does NOT contain the otraska referred to in the ppt - I used bits of broken pots. I got the idea from this from a website that charged £5 - it’s a good idea, but the resources were sadly lacking. I made this, based on that lesson idea. Enjoy!

Ancient Greece democracy v modern day

Ancient Greece democracy v modern day

I created this from various resources available including one on TES (originator pantobabe from 2013) that was a bit wordy. Thought I’d share it as it ended up a couple of hours work and would like to save someone else the time! I used in my Year 5 class today and they were very excited about writing their own speeches - we will vote next week.

Archimedes - A sample chapter from 'Standing on the Shoulders of Giants'

Archimedes - A sample chapter from 'Standing on the Shoulders of Giants'

This is a sample chapter from the forthcoming book, ‘Standing on the Shoulders of Giants’ by Tom Burkard and Colin McKenzie. It is aimed at higher ability 11-16 Physics students and has been found to be an excellent resource for revision, homework or ‘flipped learning’. Further chapters are also being made available for review and evaluation. This chapter tells the story of Archimedes and details his work on: Density - including his ‘Eureka!’ moment Turning Moments and Levers Pulleys Each chapter gives a brief biography of a great physicist and is linked to an explanation of their discoveries that is relevant to the school curriculum. Here, students learn how to calculate density and turning moments, and to explain the workings of levers and pulleys. Original sketches are included to illustrate the chapter and we welcome feedback from teachers and students before publication of the book. I have used this chapter for revision, homework and as a ‘flipped learning’ activity, where students are encouraged to independently learn the basics of a topic before it is taught in class. Our chapters are also very effective for use in ‘quiet reading’ sessions. The literacy level here is ‘middle to high’ and we have found this content to be very engaging as extension work for higher ability students.

After each poster quote I have included some information for the teacher to introduce the new quote to the classs, including a full grammatical Latin explanation of the quote, background information on the author and time, and a section on the meaning and interpretation of this specific quote so students know how and when they could use it in daily life. I use posters like these every week all school year long in my classes, and students collected them in their books and looked forward to the new quote each week. They starting using the most popular quotes in their conversations with each other, and often told me after a test when asked how it went, “oh, veni, vidi, vici!”

Jury Duty worksheets

Jury Duty worksheets

I created these worksheets to support my lessons on Ancient Greece and how they influenced modern day democracy but these sheets could be used as stand alone lessons. Included: Sheet with information on the alleged crime and those involved. There has been an alleged robbery at a man’s house. He has accused his neighbour of committing the crime. The accused’s alibi is his best friend , Sid, who has been to prison before. Who will you believe? Jurors: Three jurors all of who know one of the people involved. This sheet will help the children to understand the need for an unbiased jury. Children will discuss the jurors and decide whether or not to keep them on the jury Questionnaire: I used this with a colleague who had experienced jury duty. They came into our lesson and the children used the questions on this sheet to interview them on their experience. Statements: Brief statements from the three people involved. Children can use these to help form their opinions on the accused. Verdict/Truth: Most children I have used this lesson with come to the conclusion that Mark (the accused) is guilty. They are always surprised to know that he was set up by the man who accused him. The children find out that even if Mark was guilty, he would more than likely have walked free due to lack of evidence. This always ignites interesting conversations about how fair our legal system is.
