This activity is one in a series of interactive notebook lessons on ancient Greece.
After a lesson on ancient Greece government, students will use this graphic organizer to compare the different types.
DIRECTIONS AND ANSWER KEY:
This activity focuses on the two main city states in Greece and their government systems. Sparta was an oligarchy where a select few people have power. Athens was a democracy where all citizens have power. It also has students compare this to other ancient civilizations such as Mesopotamia and Egypt, which had a monarchy where one ruler (a king) had power and others were subjects under his rule.
For this activity, students are required to briefly describe each government and also include which ancient civilizations had each one. Then, they will connect the two circles (using a brad) and attach it to their notebook, creating a spinner wheel that they can use as a study tool.
