Storyboard Text

  • Education Athens/Sparta
  • In Athens, boys would go to school for education and girls would stay at home and work. Coaches taught them sports and at 18 they would begin military training.
  • In Sparta, children at age 7 were trained to fight including girls. Spartan boys were taught to suffer any pain. They would not be fed well and would have to get their own food. AT the age of 20 they were given a test.
  • Treatment of Women and Slaves Athens/Sparta
  • In Athens, women could not own property or choose their husbands and some of us have jobs. We usually stay home and teach children. Most people would own a slave. Slaves either worked at places or were trained as craftsmen.
  • In Sparta, women had the same rights as men. We could control our property. We would learn how to fight. Slaves had some rights and could even buy their freedom.
  • Government Athens/Sparta
  • In Athens, the government is a democracy. It is made up of men. A council of 500 suggested laws and an Assembly of 6,000 had to approve proposed laws.
  • In Sparta, the government was an oligarchy. It was made up of men. The important decisions were made by a smaller group of 30 people called the Council of Elders.
  • Economy Athens/Sparta
  • In Athens, the economy was based on trade. The bought and sold goods at a marketplace called the agora. We developed our own coins made of gold, silver, and bronze to make trade easier.
  • In Sparta, the economy relied on farming and conquering other people. Sparta discouraged trade, fearing that contact with others would weaken their government. We used heavy iron bars as money.
