Product Description
It's the battle of the Greek city-states in this fun lesson! Students complete a reading and a chart about the Athenian and Spartan city-states, then are guided through a structured debate activity to determine which society was more successful overall.

Students are assigned city-states and debate topics such as whether democracy or totalitarianism is a better governing system, whether Sparta or Athens was best for women and low-class citizens, and which society we should look to as the representation of Greek greatness. Watch out - this debate gets competitive!

Includes:
- detailed lesson plan with teacher notes and instructions
- student readings
- student debate notes and graphic organizer

If your class is shorter than an hour, you may want to assign the reading the night before to leave more time for the activity in class.
