ALEXANDER THE GREAT

ALEXANDER THE GREAT
$6.95
Travel back with CALLIOPE some 2,000 years as we join Alexander the Great on his whirlwind conquest of the "world." We join him while he still must endure the strict training of his tutor, Leonidas. Yet, he quickly proves his independent spirit by taming the wild horse Bucephalus. A play takes us to his battlefield on the Indian border for an historic encounter with the rajah Porus. Yet, more important than Alexander's military victories is the effect his love of Greek culture had on the lands and peoples he conquered - the so-called Hellenization of the East. Discover how the cities he established - the 13 Alexandrias - became the political and cultural centers of the time. Learn of advancements in medicine, astronomy, and math that were the direct result of his conquest. And there's more, including an activity on replicating ancient seals used to keep correspondence private and marking Alexander's route east, and then west, on a game board. cal9812t
