Transcript of Life in Two City-States: Athens & Sparta

Life in Two City-States:
Athens & Sparta by: Natalie P. Education in Ancient Greece Athens vs. Sparta Government in Greece *Both, Athens & Sparta had a council that could decide the laws and the rules of the city-state.
*Athens had 500 people that would meet everyday. Every 10 days 6,000 people had to meet. If that amount didn't attend, slaves were sent to gather men. The slaves dipped put dots of red paint on the men's head who didn't attend.
*The Spartan government was different, the had power of 2 kings and 28 elders. The 28 elders had to be 60 year old and were chosen by a council. The education in Greece is very different than it is now. Girls in Ancient Greece didn't have a true education if they lived in the area of Athens. Boys went to school around the age of 6 or 7 years. Before then, they learned from their mother & father. When they did got to school, they had to memorize everything. When they turned around the age of 18+, men had to train hard for the military. In Sparta, every single man and women both had to train hard to defend themselves. When men reached the age of 20 or so, men had to take a hard test about fitness, military, & leadership. Men couldn't live with their families until they reached the
age of 30 years. Economy in ancient Greece Through-out ancient Greece, trading occurred.
Sometimes with precious perfumes or cosmetics. Precious oils, perfume, cosmetic powders, eye shadows, skinglosses, paints, beauty unguents, and sometimes even hair dyes. The greeks often lacked in some materials and supplies, so they traded overseas to get them. Ships and sails were created, so people from all over the Mediterranean sea area could trade. There wasn't enough good, fertile farmland in Greece, so neighboring regions fought and had wars.
+Athens were the ones who traded most often.
Spartans discouraged trade since they believed that traders would weaken their government. So, instead of trade, Sparta used metal bars which represented coins
and money. * Girls in Ancient Greece were there to take care of their families and marry at the young age of 15. Usually women didn't choose their husbands, instead, their father chose for them. In Sparta, the girls were allowed to have a little more freedom as in going to school, or choosing their husband.
*Slaves didn't get much freedom at all. They had to take care of the owners wife and had to bathe, dress, and cook.
At times, slaves even had to work in the fields. In
Sparta, slaves were treated very harshly because
Spartans were always afraid they
might rebel. Athens Sparta Differences Athens
& Sparta Athens had boys from ages from newborn
through ages 6-7 learn from their mother
or father. From ages 6-7, till age of 14 boys learn and memorize everything. When they reached the age of 18+, men began some hard military training. All men and Women had to learn and have
very hard training to protect themselves. When
men reached the age of at least 20+, men took
a hard test of either fitness, military, & leadership. Men couldn't go home or see their family until they turned the age of at least 30 years. Athens VS. Sparta Athens and Sparta are very different from each other. They had different ways of ruling and thinking. They had many servants and people who didn't want to even sometimes be in Greece. Women and Slaves didn't have as many rights and power over land as much as men did in Ancient Greece. Women and Slaves
