Level-3: The Ancients

Project: Impact of Achievement Explained

How much of an impact can one person really have? This is an important question to consider when addressing the vast array of influential people that have shaped our history. While many of these people are no longer with us, their influence lives on. It is this influence that makes these historical figures important to our present and future. We benefit from their achievement, learn from their mistakes, and build on their knowledge towards future advancement.
