Storyboard Text

  • We should not have ropes dipped in red paint to round up the citizens.
  •   I'll trade you silver, honey, and olive oil for the resources I need but don't have.
  • OK
  • Boys come back inside, it's time for you to learn your math.
  • Athens was a democracy, so they had meetings called the Assembly and 600 people had to be there for a meeting to begin. During assembly meetings, citizens (only men) could freely say what they wanted to say, from having an idea to suggesting a new law.
  • The Athenians traded with foreign lands, like Egypt and Italy, to get what they need. Athenians acquired wood and grain doing this. They also had a market called the Agora, where merchants sold goods from small stands.
  • Work you slave! We need more food!
  • I don't want to, but I have to.
  • Athenian democracy depended on having good citizens. So young Athenian citizens (only boys) learned reading, writing, arithmetic, and literature. They also did physical and military training.
  • Yea... my arms are killing me.
  • Unlike the Athenians, Sparta was an oligarchy. There was 2 kings and a Council of Elders. The Council of Elders make the final decisions on all important issues. The council consisted of 28 men and 2 kings.
  • The Athenians depended on trade to support the economy, Sparta on the other hand depended on farming and on conquering other people's land. The Spartans then took their conquered neighbors and turned them into slaves.
  • OK
  • In Sparta, the purpose of education was to produce men and women who could protect the city-state. Spartans valued discipline and strength. From ages 7 to 20 boys learned wrestling, boxing, foot racing, and gymnastics in buildings called "barracks". 
  • That was a hard workout, right?
