Storyboard Text

  • In Greece, many of the towns had a god to look after them. Poseidon liked to pick coastal towns because he was the lord of the sea.
  • One day, both Athena and Posiedon claimed the same town. They held a contest and whoever won could watch over the town.
  • Poseidon slapped his specter against a rock to give the people water. But when they tasted it, it was salt water!
  • Athena waved her arm and then an olive tree appeared. The people were happy about this because the olives tasted good and they could use the wood for building houses.
  • In the end, Poseidon declared Athena the winner of the contest.
  • And after the contest, the people of the town named their town Athens in honor of Athena.
