The 1-page excerpt from The Lives of Plutarch has been edited so that it is easy for students to understand and relate to. It tells of the many incredibly difficult things children in Sparta went through to become soldiers and how harshly they were treated.
After reading the excerpt, students complete the short reading comprehension and opinion questions at the end.
