Goodbye Ancient China, Hello Ancient Greece

Introduction to the Geography of Ancient Greece The geography of Ancient Greece is unlike that of any other civilization we have studied this year. Familiarize yourself with the Geography of Ancient Greece by exploring The British Museum's website here. Read the introduction, follow the story of Odysseus' travels to many fantastic lands, explore maps of Ancient Greece, and finally investigate an Ancient Greek shipwreck. If you do not get to fully explore the site in class today, please do so outside of class. Tomorrow we will have a quiz testing what you learned from the site.
Homework Finish fully exploring the 'Geography' section of the British Museum's website on Ancient Greece.
