Hi, my name is Neil. I'm here to teach you about the Spartans and the Athenians, their government, and the Greek gods. let's get started!
Men in Athens took care of daily responsibilities. Like grocery shopping, and at responsibilities at home. Men in Athens also talked a lot about politics and business. Boys were taught to read and write and participate in cultural life. Boys in Athens could become traders, artisans, and merchants. Men in Sparta brought the baby before a council and the council determined if the baby was healthy. If it was then the baby returned with its parents, to train and become a soldier. If the baby was not healthy it was left to die. Boys at the age of 7 would leave the house to go train, to become a soldier. They trained until they were 20. Spartan men could marry at 18, but could not live with their wives until 20.
Women in Athens were not citizens and did not have any of the rights that free men had. Women were rarely seen in public places. Girls did not go to school. Women were taught their daughters how to clean, cook, take care of children. Women were important in the religious ceremonies in Greece. They could become a priestess and perform religious ceremonies. Women in Sparta were expected to run the house and daily business if the men were unable to. They were trained in military techniques so they could defend Sparta if enemies attacked while men were away. Women exercised to stay strong and produce strong children.
Aristocracy: A person who's "Born to rule" belongs to the ruling class, or aristocracy. They are noble just by being in the family. Whether they did something or not.
Hey! look at me I did nothing, but be born and look I am the king of this Kingdom!
