The journey continues, starting in Crete and ending in the Hellenistic Age, ushered in by Alexander the Great. Students learn about the development of democracy, the primordial defense of democracy in the Persian wars, the heyday of Athens (also known as the Golden Age), and that sad self-destruction known as the Peloponnesian Wars. But it is not history alone—culture, values, and life lessons are taught.
The Student Guide contains the Facts to Know, Vocabulary, Comprehension Questions, and Activities. The answers are contained in the Teacher Guide (sold separately).
