My students have found that living in the year 2011 might have some perks. In Ancient Sparta, boys were sent to military training from ages 7 to 30! YIKES, so asking them to take out the trash or clean their room should be much easier for you now! Tell them they could be living in Ancient Sparta!
In Ancient Athens girls were essentially slaves to educate children and take care of households, some of them marrying as young as 15. These little facts provided some interesting debates in our classroom.
Students also found many of the greatest influences the Greeks had on our Nation: Democracy, Literature, Philosophy, Architecture.
Below you will find some AMAZING projects they created to showcase the three types of architecture the Greeks designed: Doric, Ionic, and Corinthian. There are also replicas of the Parthenon, and some Greek Vases! ENJOY!
