Athens vs. Sparta: The Greek Bid Battle

posted May 15, 2016, 2:01 PM by Warren Wannamaker

Students will spend the week focused on the poleis of Athens and Sparta. First, they will complete the remaining activities they have regarding both of these city-states. Then, we'll prepare for a quiz on these two locations, which should take place on Wednesday and Thursday. 

We'll then focus on our Greek Bid Battle project. This project will see students prepare proposals for the ancient cities of Athens and Sparta to host the ancient Olympic Games. Students will look to different factors that would be required for hosting the games, and how each polis would accomplish those requirements. In class, we'll discuss the project, it's directions, and how it will be graded. Students will also find out their groups, and the city that their group will represent. 

Have a great week!
