Ancient Greece by Maisie Bees
Transcript of Ancient Greece by Maisie Bees
ago, the Greeks created a way of life
that other people admired and copied. Here is Greece and this is what it looks like from close up Where the Greeks Lived
The Ancient Greeks lived in mainland Greece and the Greek islands, but also in what is now Turkey, and in colonies scattered around the Mediterranean sea coast.
There were Greeks in Italy, Sicily, North Africa and as far west as France. Thank you for reading my prezi
and I hope you enjoyed it! The Olympic Games
The Olympic Games began over 2,700 years ago in Olympia, in southwest Greece. The Games were part of a religious festival. The Greek Olympics, thought to have begun in 776 BC, inspired the modern Olympic Games (begun in 1896) The Games were held in honour of Zeus, king of the gods, and were staged every four years at Olympia, a valley near a city called Elis. People from all over the Greek world came to watch and take part. Greek gods and heros
the greeks believe that there are lots of different gods that have their own special power.
The Greeks believed that gods and goddesses watched over them. The gods were like humans, but immortal (they lived for ever) and much more powerful.
A family of gods and goddesses lived in a cloud-palace above Mount Olympus, the highest mountain in Greece The gods looked down to watch what people were doing, and from time to time, interfered with what went on.
The gods did not always behave very well. Their king, Zeus, was always being unfaithful to his wife Hera. He appeared on Earth as a human or an animal to trick women he had fallen in love with.
