History

Today we are going to find out about two of the mightiest city states of Ancient Greece: Athens and Sparta. 

In the region that we call Ancient Greece, which spanned across a large portion of Europe, there were city states which had their own rules, and ways of living. Here is a map of the land known as Ancient Greece. Can you find Sparta and Athens? It also has Crete on there, the home of King Minos who trapped poor Daedalus and Icarus!

 

 

 

On the pack below there is some information about what Athens and Sparta were like: 

As you can see, the city states were vastly different, and had very different ways of dealing with things.

You are now going to write down the different ideas that make Athens and Sparta so different. The sheet below has some ideas at the bottom to help you with sorting out the differences.
