FREE SOCIAL STUDIES LESSON – “Ancient Greece: Minoan Frescoes”

by Skool Aid Products

5th – 8th Grade




Minoan Frescoes is an excerpt from my presentation of Ancient Greece: The Minoan and Mycenae Civilizations

The Minoan language has yet to be deciphered and the main source of information on them is from their frescoes and artifacts. These frescoes give students an unparalleled opportunity to experience being archaeologists. So I put together a series of Minoan frescoes paired with guiding questions to lead the students on a journey of historic discovery. How do their observations stand up to those of archaeologists and historians? Try the sample in your classroom, the complete Minoan presentation is 173 slides and handouts and explores in depth the entire archaeological discovery by Sir Arthur Evans and new information unearthed since then. Your students will love it, and be highly engaged in this style of learning.
