Product Description

This activity is one in a series of interactive notebook lessons on ancient Greece.

After a lesson on the Greek city states Sparta and Athens, students will use this graphic organizer to compare the two. This activity has three parts. First, students will illustrate a Spartan and Athenian on the silhouette. Then, they will use the thought bubbles to describe the jobs of their characters and explain their drawings. Finally, students will use the "Brains or Brawn" box to describe the differences between the two cities. Differences can include but are not limited to: military, trade, education, government, daily life, roles and rights of women, specialization, jobs, travel, etc.
