Ancient Greece was organised into city states, the two we hear most about are Athens and Sparta and life in the city states was very different. People belonging to each city state saw themselves as being, for example, Spartan or Athenian first as opposed to being Greek. The city states in this ancient world did not always get along with one another. The video below explains a little more about how the geographical positioning of Athens and Sparta affected their outlook and relationships with one another.
I would like you to watch the videos below and decide where you would rather live; explain - in detail - with referent to the information you now have which city state you would rather live in.
Finally, imagine being a Spartan soldier! After watching the video below, imagine you are a Spartan soldier, write me a diary entry, in role, about what a typical day would have been like for you.
Remember features of a diary -
Time chronological order.
Chatty tone - informal language.
Writing about events of one day.
When you have finished, draw a picture of a hoplite, can you label all of the armour and weaponry?
