Product Description
This is a great way to have students show what they know about Athens and Sparta while honing their writing skills!

Students must persuade the reader to live in either Sparta or Athens, based on things they learned about each city-state's economy, military, education, treatment of women and slaves, etc.

Students really get into this because they get competitive, and want to prove to their other classmates that the city-state they chose is the best!

Side Note: If you want to take this further, have a debate on different issues after the students finish writing their essays, or have a few students read parts of their essays aloud.
