Athens and Sparta comparison activity. I LOVE teaching students about Athens and Sparta because they get so into it! In this activity, students must fill in a venn diagram to compare the traits of Athens and Sparta. Then, they must read scenarios and decide what city-state they would want to join based on the prompt. Lastly, students get to design their own flags for the city-state that they decide to join. This is so fun, and I sometimes use it as a debate topic!
