  • $5.50

An Integrated, Interdisciplinary, Thematic Unit On the History of the Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians from 5000 B.C. to 500 B.C. Just like the civilizations of antiquity, the men and women of today's world face many challenges and are
presented with many opportunities for advancement. This unit will help students realize how the "ability to
think" makes man different from the other lifeforms with which we share Planet Earth. It is this ability that has
enabled the species known as man to determine the best areas of our orb on which to live, develop governments,
philosophies, religions, arts, music, agriculture, and technology and thereby expand the scope of accomplishments
which we call our history.
In this unit, students will be challenged to determine and evaluate the basic necessities that are required to sustain
a people, the needs and wants that developed their particular cultures, philosophies, governments, the development of
commerce, and the relationship between the development of geometry and architecture. They will also develop an
understanding of how the decisions and accomplishments of these civilizations still influences the decisions and
accomplishments of modern man.
