Storyboard Text

  • Nearly every town in ancient Greece had a god to look over it.
  • The gods were jealous and would never share.
  • So they had a contest to see who got to look over the village they would give the villagers a gift and the villagers would vote on which one was the most useful.
  • One day Athena the Greek god of wisdom and Poseidon the Greek god of the sea picked the same village.
  • Zeus gave them a stream but there was something wrong with the stream, it was saltwater so they couldn't drink from it.
  • Athena gave them an olive tree they found it more useful because they could build homes from the wood, fire and they could eat the olives and make cooking oil from the olive tree.
  • Even though the villagers knew which one was more useful they did not want to anger Poseidon because they lived near the sea but then Poseidon let out a might laugh and said Athena had won
  • That's how a small village got a smart and powerful goddess named Athena that made their village famous and then they named it Athens for her.
