Ancient Art at the Legion of Honor (6th Grade)

This curriculum guide seeks to expand student understanding of the cultural climates that stimulated the growth of Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece, and Rome. As objects of personal devotion, displays of state power, or funerary implements, art played an important role in the development and organization of these cultures. Incorporating these lessons in your classroom will help enliven historical studies, foster interdisciplinary comprehension, and encourage students to recognize the direct influences of the past on the present.
