De Chipiona a Atenas

Publicado: abril 16, 2016 en Primero de ESO

ImageMe llamo Filipo. Soy un chico de Atenas. Me encanta pasear por mi ciudad e investigar los restos arqueológicos. Pero estoy en un apuro… mi profesor de Historia, me ha dicho que debo aprenderme los diferentes estilos arquitectónicos, y por más que lo intento no se me queda.

¿Podrías ayudarme? Echa un vistazo a la página 172 del libro y completa las partes que tienen en inglés. (Si quieres verlo más grande pincha en la foto).


¡Ah, se me olvidaba! Se que soy un poco pesado, pero necesito otro favor…

He estado buscando de aquí para allá, pero no tengo manera de encontrar una dichosa escultura que me guste, Atenas ha cambiado mucho en los últimos dos mil quinientos años por lo que se ve… y me han encomendado también que encuentre un ejemplo de escultura de época arcaica, otra de época clásica, y otra de época helenística…

Como pista, mi amiga Helena, me ha dicho que podéis visitar las siguientes páginas:

¿Seríais capaces de traerme ejemplos? ¿Seríais capaces de contarme cual es la historia que esconden esas esculturas?

Gracias por adelantado, cuando vengáis por Grecia estáis invitados a una musaca (que es un plato famoso y muy rico de aquí).

  1. Give a map to the students.
  2. They have to play in pairs. They have to hide their map to his/her partner.
  3. They must place five game pieces ( They can cut fiver small papers with a 5 cents coin size) on the map, on five different cities.
  4. Player A must say to Player B coordinates at random (For example: 41 degrees North, 4 degrees West). If the coordinates are right (Player B has a game piece on these coordinates), Player B must say hit. If the coordinates are wrong Player B must say land.
  5. The goal is to guess where all the game pieces are.


Learning to orient, to say the coordinates correctly in English and to understand concepts such as longitude and latitude. These are our didactic purposes.

Interactive activity.

A roll game based on the History of Athens and Sparta…
