Basic Skills: Rainbow spellings

English: Reading Activity

Our English tasks this week are based upon the Greek Myth 'Theseus and the Minotaur.'This is one of the longer Myths , so for today I only want you to read the text. I would like you to think about who the main characters are and what the main events of the story are. Greek myths often cover the theme of good defeating evil. Do you think this happens in this myth?

History: The Ancient Greeks

Today I would like you to order dates from Ancient Greek history to make a timeline. The Ancient Greeks lived for thousands of years before the birth of Jesus. For this reason the events on their timeline are recorded as BCE  ( Before the Common Era) or BC  ( Before Christ). The events that occurred closet to the birth of Jesus have smaller numbers eg. the Romans took over the Greek Empire in 146 BC whereas the first Olympic Games were held in 776 BC,  hundreds of years before the Roman Invasion.
