Alexander the Great! Reading Passage/Extension Activities

This resource is part of my new series, “Let’s Meet…” famous people in ancient history.

With this biographical reading passage, students will learn about the Alexander the Great, the famous Military Leader of the Ancient World. There is a Did You Know? section, comprehension questions and a teacher page with extensions and links. More than a military leader, Alexander the Great’s lasting contribution to the world was the spreading of Greek culture to all he met.

My Let’s Meet… series is growing. Currently, I also have the following in the series:
Hatshepsut, Ramses, Socrates, Hammurabi, Aesop and Hannibal .
