World History Homework. 9/14/11 Karl F.

1. The Greek Empire Existed from 300-100 B.C. The Event that marked its beginning was the first Olympics. The Event that marked its end was the death of Alexander the Great.

Dates are not right. The date of the Olympics was 776 B.C. (Minus 1). The end is described correctly, but needs a date attached to it.

2. My Favorite fable told by Aesop is "The Wolf in Sheep`s clothing." It is my favorite because it teaches us to be aware of the power of Deception.

Superb answer.

3. Plato was a famous Greek Philosopher who lived from 428-347 B.C. Aristotle was another famous Philosopher who happened to be the student of Plato. He lived from 384-322 B.C. There are several major differences between these two men. Plato loved to study Physics and Math. While Aristotle loved to study Biology. Plato thought that the key to knowledge is Logic. Yet Aristotle believed that Experience is the key to knowledge.

Excellent!

4. The Persian Empire was formed in 530 B.C. under the rule of Darius I. He introduced Currency for trade, he imposed a common calender, and built the 1,600 mile Royal Road across the Middle East. Assyria was a kingdom located in Northern Mesopotamia. It depended on Babylon for many years until it rose to power in the 14 century B.C. They were know for there cruelty and military skills, and they ruled most of the Middle East from India to the Persian Gulf.

Good - note that "calendar" ("ar" ending) is the correct spelling.
