L.O: To research Greek artefacts.

In today's lesson we will be looking at a variety of ancient Greek artefacts. Do you know what an artefact is?

An artefact is a an object with a cultural or historical interest.

We know a lot about ancient Greek life from objects which have survived for thousands of years. Over time archaeologists have dug up ancient Greek artefacts and buildings. Some artefacts we will look at today include:

-Pottery

-Buildings

-Statues

-Coins

-Jewellery

-Masks

Pottery has been the most useful find because it was often painted or decorated with scenes from everyday life.

Today we are going to pretend to be travel writers and our task will be to design an eye-catching holiday brochure all about Greece. In our writing, we will need to describe some of the physical geographical features of Greece (such as what the weather is like, is it mostly flat or mountainous etc) and the human features (such as what language is spoken, what is the main religion etc.) You might want to do some additional research of your own or visit some travel websites with an adult to find out more. 

The slides and resources for this lesson are attached below. You can present your learning however you would like to, either by hand or electronically.
