Olympic Games: Prehistory, Antiquity, and Revival

Click on the links to learn about the history of the Olympic games in prehistory and ancient Greece as well as their revival for the modern day. Prehistory offers evidence of Olympic-type games from Minoan Crete, Myceneans, the Homeric Age, Polis, and Olympia. Click on the links at the side for topography, a short description of the monuments at ancient Olympia, 3-D reconstructions of some of the most important buildings in ancient Olympia (be sure to look at the Temple of Zeus), famous contests in ancient Greece. Don't miss the first-person account of Ariston, an athlete from the first Olympic games in Olympia.

"I am in the process of converting my moodle and portal webpages that I use in Pinellas County to my eCoach websites. I have decided to break my websites up into units instead of courses, because I keep getting switched around from various grade levels and content areas (Reading vs. Language Arts) - But I don’t want to lose my lessons. For example I currently teach 7th grade reading and we do a unit on Egypt, but two years ago I taught 6th grade and we also touched on Egypt. I want my resources to be middle school level and fluid enough for me to adapt to whatever grade I’m teaching. It will take some time, but I think it will help out in the long run. Thanks again for eCoach!! I Love It!!"
