Ancient Greeks

Photobucket 

We read about Sparta and Athens and did a Venn diagram about the cities.  Honestly the kids didn’t get much about this, but after a lot of repeating and reminding they got the gist of the two cities.

 

It simplified down to Sparta fights a lot, and everyone fought in their town, everyone learns how to be a soldier.

 

Athens is the city of art and democracy.  That simplified down to art.  All the discussion of how their government was just flew over their heads.

 

021And they were the same because they were both city-states.

 

But that’s boring.  We finished up by taking the same pots from our earlier sunflower game and made them into greek pots.

 

And the boys pots were very greek showing fantastic battle scenes.  I’m not sure what Princess’ was.
