This activity has a couple of parts to it. The kids will compare Athens and Sparta using a chart of their differences. There is a discussion activity using Agree/Disagree Corners which is easy and quick to implement in your classroom. The culminating activity has the kids decide which city-state was more superior. If they choose Athens, they'll use the Athenian Philosopher stationary to write a letter to Sparta arguing why they are more superior. If they choose Sparta, they'll write on the Spartan stationary to Athens.
