This publication was designed not only to introduce the Museum's collection of Greek art to teachers and their students, but also to provide them with a general grounding in ancient Greek culture, from the prehistoric period to the end of the Classical age. Its range of resources gives educators great flexibility in engaging students of any age with the art of ancient Greece. Included are a brief history of Athens from the 6th to the 4th century B.C.; a look at key aspects of 5th-century Greek life; discussions of Greek art, artists, materials, and the influence of Greek subjects in the art of other eras; suggested activities and lesson plans; a map of the ancient Greek world; a timeline; and a bibliography.
