Wow, why are there no girls?!
Wow, I can't believe there already training for the military!
I'm not sure this baby is strong enough.
Wow, I've teleported back to my time! That was so cool! I wonder what economy was like in those times......
Athenians said that only boys grew up to be citizens. Citizens had to have a sharp mind, so only boys were taught reading, writing, and arithmetic. Most girls, however, did not learn to read or write. Girls stayed home and learned to cook, clean, spin thread, and weave cloth.
Spartans believed that the purpose of education was to produce men and women who could protect the city-state, that's why babies with imperfections were left to die. At the age of 7, spartan boys and girls were training for battle. Reading and writing was found not important. Boys were encouraged to steal as long as they didn't get caught and had to take a difficult test at the age of 20.
Wow, that was an amazing trip! I don't think I'd like to live in Sparta!
Athenian economy was based on trade. The land around Athenians did not provide enough food. However, there was a sea near the Athenians. The sea made it easier to trade. Athenians sold and bought items in a marketplace called Agora. This provided them with the resources they needed.
What a pretty necklace!
Sparta's economy relied on farming and conquering other people. When Sparta didn't have enough land to feed it's people, they took land from their neighbors. Slaves helped produce goods because Spartans didn't have enough time to produce goods because they had to train for battle. Spartans didn't trade because they believed that trading would bring new ideas and weaken their government.
