Whitelaw, R. Lynn
Among the many contributions made by Ancient Greeks and Romans to contemporary life, are those which influence art, architecture, literature, philosophy, mathematics and science, theater, athletics, religion, and the founding of democracy. The Tampa Museum of Art's classical collection offers a unique opportunity to learn about Ancient Greeks and Romans through primary source artifacts. This booklet, which contains information and activities related to the museum collection, may be adapted for independent use with middle school level students. Suggested activities and activity worksheets are organized in 8 sections: (1) "The Classical World: Antiquities from Greece and Rome"; (2) "Life in Ancient Times: An Introduction"; (3) "Understanding the Ancient Greeks"; (4) "All About Greek Vases"; (5) "Understanding the Ancient Italians"; (6) "Mythology"; (7) "Yesterday to Today: Classical Reference"; and (8) "Some Related Activities." The resource concludes with a Glossary, References, Bibliography, and Notes. (MM)
